George's father, who was also a talented artist, was the inspiration behind George's passion for painting and drawing.
On leaving art college during the late 1970s, at the time of the miners' strikes and the three-day working week, George had no option but to put away his paint palette and find work. He held many varied jobs but realised that in order to follow his dream he had to make an important decision. George chose to commit himself fully to his passion for fine art and became a full time artist, a decision he has never regretted.
George's artistic creations have been evolving since 1989, with inspiration being drawn from treks through the beautiful Derbyshire Dales and visits to Cornwall. Like many professional artists, he strives for perfection and has a strong commitment to his work.
George's paintings have a quirkiness which has won him much notoriety and a strong following.
