Georgia Perry was born a bush baby to artist parents, way out in Broken Hill (Mad Max country) and is now a graphic artist living and working in Sydney. After escaping the desert Georgia lived and worked her way through London, South Africa and Amsterdam, becoming endlessly inspired and slowly (but surely!) developing her skills and style. Constantly experimenting with her image-making and utilising a variety of techniques, from digital to collage to fingerpaint (and more!). Georgia uses simple colours, patterns and shapes to create bold and striking works. Georgia loves glitter, crayons, plane food and working hard.

Afternoons after kindergarten spent drawing with my Mum – asking her to draw everything from cactus to canaries – so I could colour in her outlines.
