Drawing her subjects from life and from her imagination, Isobel
George re-creates them as watercolour, oil, acrylic and mixed media
paintings in a semi-abstract figurative style.
In watercolour, she has developed a technique of working with
the water, the pigment and the paper that produces the flow and
spontaneity inherent in her work
She uses a very different approach when working with oils and
acrylics, which tend to come from a contrary, unrelated corner of
her mind. No drawing is involved – she launches straight in with the colour and allows the
painting to develop a form and structure of its own.
A native of London, England, Isobel George divides her creative
time between California and the south of France.
Her work has been exhibited in both public and private
collections in Europe, South America and the U.S.A.
