We popped by Georgia’s studio to discover more about her creative process.
Take us back to the start of your artistic career – what was the key thing that first sparked your interest in art and design?
Limone Art came to me in 2017 having been inspired by the work of other current minimal artists and missing the day-to-day creativity and hands on tactility I used to enjoy as my jewellery business (By . G) has grown. I had never really thought about fine art as a career option growing up and studied fashion design thinking this was a more viable creative medium to pursue. Working in fashion and accessories I became more interested with interiors and art so decided to just have a play with painting and over a couple of years it has really grown a following. Limone Art is my side hustle and therapeutic free expression that just happens to be appreciated by others so has become a second business.
Where do you find most of your inspiration for your art?
I’m very inspired by other artists from the past including Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Ellsworth Kelly and Amadeo Modigliani and present artists Christiane Spangsberg, Emma Gale and Benjamin Ewing to name a few. I collect art books and follow a lot of amazing artists on Instagram that will inspire me with colours, materials, forms etc.
Besides creating beautiful art and running your own jewellery label, what are your hobbies?
There’s not a lot of time left in the day after these and work doesn’t feel like work so I spend a lot of evenings and weekend time ‘working’ on paintings or jewellery, but I love reading, visiting galleries, catching up for meals, coffee or cocktails with friends and going on long walks with my whippet Mika!
How does your perfect Sunday look?
My perfect Sunday would involve a good sleep in (having had a fun Saturday night out for dinner or drinks), starting with a leisurely coffee, breakfast and long walk with my boyfriend and dog in Bondi, followed by an afternoon spritz, cooking dinner at home and ending with a movie on the couch! I like to have Sunday’s as a complete rest day.
