Georgina is a truly local artist to our SG Artshop Gallery, living just a few minutes away from us in Carraroe!
Summer Exhibition at the SG ArtShop.
My name is Georgina Melly and I am Sligo based artist. I mainly work in acrylics but in recent times have dabbled with oil paints. Initially I focus upon sketching the image that I have chosen and then “kill” the white of the canvas by blocking in the image and then building up the layers of colour.
Ever since childhood I have been fascinated by nature and the colours that it gives us. I simply love to try painting what I see. I love to paint animals but I am also inspired by the countryside around me and in particular the flowers, trees, mountains and the sea.
I have been a long-time member of the art group at St Michaels in Church Hill Sligo and participated in a number of group shows which were held in St Michaels and also in Johnston’s Court Shopping Centre Sligo.
I have participated in the “Sligo Feis Ceol” adult art competitions and was the overall winner in 2007. For many years I have also entered the “Irish Shows Association Fleetwood Paints All Ireland” Amateur Painting Competition and have been a finalist on four occasions achieving 4th place overall in 2015.
The SG Artshop supplies a range of high quality art and craft materials to local artists, both professional and recreational. We are open 6 days a week and are delighted to welcome you to this show of work.
