Georgina Forbes – or Dordie to those who find this too hard to say – has fashion in her DNA. Georgie is a colourful Brisbane based Fine Artist & Illustrator who happily creates & paints in her light filled studio in Brisbane, Australia. Her work is colourful, detailed, quirky, fun and she likes to explore subjects from still life through to the absurdly abstract. She also happens to be a sought-after artist whose vivid prints have featured in collaborations with some of well-known fashion and accessory creatives. Artistic for as long as she can remember, Georgie has always been fascinated with patterns. As a child of the 80s, it’s 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.
Somewhere in between, Georgie managed to add three kids to her gallery of impressive creations. Her family continues to offer her the advice and feedback she has never actually asked for, but Georgie describes them as her personal cheer squad who have always backed her ambitions, inspired her creativity and joined in her enthusiasm to create something new.
