Tricia George has been painting professionally for over 30 years. She started her career in New York as a muralist and decorative artist and followed her creative career to California, pursuing her art for over 15 years. She worked on murals for the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, as well as murals located at the Albuquerque Balloon Museum. About midway into her career, Tricia began exhibiting her artwork which consists of wildlife placed upon reflective and troweled surfaces. She has shifted her stylized method of painting today working on a cool matte plaster and adorning the surface with whimsical and playful critters. These paintings have become the inspiration for Tricia and she is beginning a new path through her development of picture books which teach meaningful and sweet moral lessons. She still works in the decorative arts, murals, commissioned paintings and much more!
For this exhibition she has chosen to share with you her artwork that has become the signature for her recently self-published picture books she started a year ago. Her works are painted on matte plaster troweled onto raised birch panels in acrylic. Her Relationship Series reflects cute critters interacting with one another, bearing gifts of fruits or vegetables. The premise is gifts can be given in so many ways and relationships come in many packages, one never knows what to expect! In her Rainbow Series, Tricia depicts animals in various poses and positions setting the tone of presence, humor and peacefulness.
