After studying at St Martins Georgie Hopton has continued to expand her use of different medium, not caring to settle on one as definitive. Her works in photography, collage, printmaking and sculpture are made in conjunction recently with wallpaper and fabric designs – a natural extension of the vegetable prints she makes each summer from her temporary but extensive vegetable garden. Self portraits, studies of flowers and still life are consistent subject threads, woven through forays into abstraction and decoration. Like her heroes of the Wiener Werkstaette and The Arts And Crafts Movement, her heart lies in creation with no boundaries, the melding of art and life, the one reflecting and intersecting the other.
Her work is housed in several permanent collections including the Arts Council Collection and has been exhibited widely throughout the United Kingdom
Georgie Hopton was nominated for the Max Mara prize in 2007.
