Georgina Barclay was born in 1978 and brought up in Waldringfield near Woodbridge.
After completing a foundation year in Fine Art at Newcastle University, she spent three years at an Atelier in Florence called the Charles Cecil Studio. It was in Italy that Georgina fell in love with classical portraiture. She trained in the method and style of the Renaissance Masters and studied sight size techniques of drawing, painting and sculpting from life. Her work has evolved to combine these disciplines with a contemporary freedom of brushwork and colour.
Georgina has completed many commissions, including HRH The Prince Of Wales for The Black Watch and more recently a portrait of the Queen in her Jubilee Year for The Ascot Rehabilitation Hospital.
Having spent 18 years working in London from her Chelsea studio, Georgina has moved back to Suffolk and is working on portraits, landscape and still life in her studio in Waldringfield.
