Georgina Forbes

Georgina is a colourful Brisbane based Fine Artist & Illustrator who happily creates & paints in her light filled studio in Brisbane, Australia. Artistic for as long as she can remember, Georgie has always been fascinated with colour and patterns. As a child of the 80s, it is no surprise she admits to being a Ken Done and Jenny Kee tragic and if you squint, you’ll see a bit of their influence shining through her luminous patterns.

Georgie’s work is happy, joyful, colourful, patterned, detailed with a twist of fun and the unexpected and she loves to explore subjects from nature, still life through to the absurdly abstract.  Georgie likes to convey a positive, joyful and happy message in her artworks, and she creates for artworks in many different markets for many different types of clients — surface design, editorial, book, advertising, stationery, products. Georgie strives to weave all her art projects together with style, joy and colour being the consistent thread.

Georgie has been painting and creating for over 25 years and holds a bachelor’s degree in both Fine Art and Fashion design Griffith University in Brisbane. Throughout the past 10 years, Georgie’s work has been a finalist in numerous art awards, including being awarded People’s Choice in 2019 in the Lethbridge 20,000 Small Scale Art Award at the Lethbridge Gallery, Brisbane. She was also was awarded Judges Choice in the "Petite Pieces" Competition at the Aspire Gallery, Brisbane in 2018. Georgie has had solo and group shows across Australia and her work is held in private collections around the world.

Somewhere in between juggling a zillion projects, Georgie managed to add three kids to her gallery of impressive creations. Her family are her personal cheer squad who have always backed her ambitions, inspired her creativity and always join in her enthusiasm to create beautiful works of art.
