Since relocating to St. Simons Island, GA on a full time basis in 2004, George has pursued an interest in art and painting that goes back to his childhood. George’s subject matter is primarily coastal landscapes and his medium is oil. He spends about half his time in the studio and the other half (weather permitting) painting outside en plein air.
George began as a student of Chris DiDomizio in Atlanta from 2000 to 2004. He has since studied with nationally known artists, including: Scott Christiansen, Roger Dale Brown, Larry Moore, Chris Groves, Ken Backhaus, Morgan Samuel Price, Dee Beard Dean and many others.
George is very active in the art community of Coastal Georgia. He is a Board Member of Jekyll Island Art Association where he also serves as an instructor in oil and acrylic painting, George is the outgoing President of the GA Coastal Artists’ Guild, and he is a Member of Glynn Visual Arts and McIntosh Art Assoc., American Impressionist Society and Oil Painters of America, where one of his paintings was recently chosen for the Eastern Regional 2020 Show. He has also been actively involved in the Albert Fendig — Hofwyl Plantation Plein Air Event and “Traveling Exhibit” since it’s inception nine years ago.
George is represented by Reinert Fine Art in Charleston, SC.
His works will be in our Spotlight Gallery until the end of September, 2021.
