Georgina Taylor

I'm often found foraging for interesting forms wherever I am. That may be old flowers from a bemused florist, something I picked up at a jumble sale or spotted in a local park or garden. Let’s say I have a penchant for the natural, antiquated and peculiar. Anything that could be easily overlooked, taken for granted or forgotten. Old botanical and biological illustrations also play a huge role in my work.

Based in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, my work often features native fauna and flora, although not exclusively. My preferred medium is watercolour. It captures my energy and signature and allows for the detail and translucency that I love. My technique is unconventional because I was never formally trained in watercolour. Instead, I studied to be a jeweller and was drawn back into illustration, a childhood obsession, once I graduated.
