Georgie Stewart is a London-based illustrator who has developed her own visual language by combining a natural drawing style with explosive colour selection. She’s the queen of colour-driven textures and warm, vibrant, eye-popping landscapes that make viewers stop and look.
Her work is ideal across lifestyle and publishing briefs and is perfect for campaigns that want to say things slightly differently to the norm. Clients are drawn to her imaginative approach and the excitement and whimsy she puts into every image.
Georgie’s creative inspiration comes from all around her, as well as great painters like Matisse, Bonnard and Hockney. With a recently purchased orange camper van, she hopes to go on the road, visiting new places and discovering new colour combinations in her travelling studio. She has an MA in Illustration from Camberwell School of Arts and an MA in Contemporary Art from Sotheby’s Institute of Art.
Location drawing is an important part of Georgie’s process – getting out and sensing the true atmosphere of what she’s creating. She chooses vibrant and unusual colour palettes. Typically, she draws, paints, adds digital elements then prints out and finishes by hand.
Joy, optimism, curiosity, a zest for life – these are the themes Georgie aims for in her work and they’re reflected through the energetic colour fusions she concocts.
Georgie’s clients include Annabel’s, COA GOA, Kibre Interiors, JIGGY and Everpress.
I commissioned Georgie to do a piece for my brother’s wedding as I had seen her work on Instagram and loved her style. I wanted to capture the moment as they were coming out of the church as their wedding present, which Georgie did beautifully. Georgie was helpful and engaged with me throughout the process to make sure that we were on the same page and that I was happy with the progress. Once it was finished the piece arrived promptly and my brother and his wife absolutely loved it. I would and have recommended Georgie to friends as she is brilliant and I continue to buy prints / cards from her website as and when new ones come out (most recently one for my incoming nephew’s room!)

I asked Georgie if she could paint a picture of the bridge over the River Thames at Chertsey, where my husband grew up. It was for an anniversary present. I gave her free rein but mentioned I’d like a swan! She produced the perfect picture, within the time she’d promised. My husband and I are delighted with the result

I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to use Georgie’s talent. Her illustrations have brought my words to life and everyone compliments the cover before they open it!...and I mean it. I was at Arsenal v Barcelona women’s last night and three of the people I was with all said how great it is. Also, it’s common people say ‘what a unique style’ , or ‘so different to other boring front covers’...which I think is particularly cool feedback!

I commissioned a piece to commemorate the years I spent in London and was so pleased with what Georgie was able to create, especially as we were able to talk through options during the process and make updates and additions as we went
