Artists Statement..

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.

Georgina is a familiar figure the SG Artshop, purchasing all her art supplies from us. Most of the work in this exhibition is created using System 3, Galleria and Winsor and Newton paints. 

See our ranges of acrylic paints, oil paints and watercolour paints, as well as our canvases and other arts & crafts supplies.

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.
