Biography

Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Georgia has loved drawing for as long as she can remember. Georgia has been hooked on chalk pastels since her mom gave her a set when she was in grade four. She graduated from the Alberta College of Art in 1982 where she studied Visual Communication. She first used her art for children by drawing pictures for her Sunday School class while telling Bible stories. She has been writing and illustrating for children ever since. She has illustrated twenty children’s books. She has written six of the books that she illustrated. Georgia lives with her husband on a small farm in Central Alberta, north of Lacombe. Her grown children and granddaughter live nearby. She spends her time doing exactly what she loves to do, writing, illustrating, and painting. She illustrates in chalk pastel on sanded paper and paints in acrylic on canvas.
