About the Artist
George Wilson, who resides in Portland, Oregon, comes from a small fishing village in Scotland where he grew up in a family of fishermen going back seven generations. He imbues his dream-like watercolor paintings with his love of water and places where land meets sea. Focusing on painting and drawing, Wilson studied fine art at the prestigious Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, Scotland. After graduating, he found his way back to the sea, his time shared between fishing trips and the studio. His work is a beautiful balance of both worlds, one love always merging with the other.
George is represented by Imogen Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
