Georgina McMaster graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2002 with a BA (Hons) Visual Communication, specialising in Drawing, Painting and Illustration.
She continued her studies for a further year, studying Teacher Training at Bath Spa University.
In 2008 Georgina McMaster was awarded the David Cargill Award at the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts for her painting 'Perfect Match', which we are delighted to have available in print.
"My work is mainly based on animals, in particular Scottish wildlife. I use acrylic paint on canvas, leaving the background blank to draw the focus purely on the animal. Capturing the soul of the animal in their eyes, the softness of the fur and the wetness of the Scottish weather on the beast, is what I endeavor to create in my work. I try to acheive the different textures by using lots of light layers of paint and a wide variety of brushes."
