Georgina is an Australian contemporary artist with an academic background in architecture. She was born in the mountainous, waterfall-rich region of Dorrigo, NSW in 1993 – a place that set her captivation with open space and natural phenomena.
Georgina holds a Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture (Griffith University) and a Master of Architecture (Sydney University). She has worked with architecture firms specialising in quality new-build and heritage residential and commercial design, and worked and studied in Rome, Milan, and the Netherlands. She understands the responsibility of the architect to be a conscious positive influence within the built environment – that timeless architecture is attentive to the fundamental details that make good design enduring. Her current role as an Associate with Billy Lam Architect + Associates centres on creating purposeful space, where she can freely obsess over the finest details in bespoke residential design.
As a contemporary visual artist with a distinctive style, Georgina has secured commissions ranging in scope from artisanal to corporate. Among her clientele are Lexus, Adobe, Faber-Castell, Strathmore Artist Papers, Sydney University, Micador, and a broad array of Australian and International buyers. She commenced her work as an Ambassador for Faber-Castell Australia in 2016.
After meeting a founder of the Authentic Design Alliance in 2016, Georgina became a passionate advocate for protecting Australia's design industry. She supports the notion that 'replica' is fake, and legislation that protects our designers by banning the sale of counterfeit furniture and lighting is overdue. As an architect, Georgina pledges never to specify replica products for her clients.
Georgina currently lives and works as an artist and architect in Brisbane, Australia with her husband Phil and their Golden Retriever.
