Georgia Roswell

Check out Georgia’s website and her blog.

Prevent Stretching, Baste Your Curves”, is about connections between my mother, myself and my daughter. My mother taught me how to sew and was always giving me pertinent advice which sometimes I followed and sometimes I didn’t! My mother and I made many trips to fabric stores and I have spent numerous hours running my hands over yards of beautiful fabrics. Consequently I am deeply influenced by pattern and texture.  My mother has since passed away but the skills are still being passed down through my daughter and I. The dressmaking pattern I choose is a McCalls Easy pattern from 1956, the year I was born. It makes me laugh to see what was considered and “easy” sewing project in the 50′s!

Georgia’s Artist’s Statement

I come from a family that appreciates the value, craftsmanship and personal expression of a thing beautifully made. My formal degree is in painting and drawing but my love of art began very early under the tutelage of my Mother. Her curiosity and mastery of the “woman’s arts”, instilled in me a love for,“The irregular and intimate quality of things made entirely by the human hand.” *

        The world around me is my inspiration. Ideas might spring from the natural world, like looking closely at the details of a shell or seeing the patterns of the land from the window of an airplane. It could be from the world of ideas, books or museums, where I am inspired by other cultures, thoughts and artists.

        My years as an artist have taken me through many different media, each one buliding upon the next and strengthen my voice as an artist. Art is the language I use to translate the world around me.  Combining nontraditional materials  in unusual ways, with a heavy emphasis on pattern, color and texture, I create a vibrant visual vocabulary. My goal is to present work that inspires an interesting and lively conversation.
