Georgie Young was born in 1949 in Ayrshire. She is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and paints mainly contemporary Scottish landscapes. Her work aims to evoke a feeling and capture a sense of place, an atmosphere or an unexpected detail rather than reproduce a direct likeness. It is an attempt to reveal the unexpected beauty of unremarked places, the interplay of light, time, weather and season on everyday landscape. She paints primarily in acrylic using a bold palette and layers of rich textures. For many years Georgie Young lived, taught and painted in Ayrshire. She now lives in Edinburgh.
