About Georgia Peskett

Born in 1965 - Ladbroke Grove, London

Georgia’s artist parents relocated to Richmond upon Thames near Twickenham, she was educated at Grey Court School in Ham.

At Epsom School of Art she studied at foundation level before leaving the UK to live in New York with her father Pop Artist Stanley Peskett where she was a studio apprentice.

These various locations have shaped her work; experiencing New York’s vivid 1980s Art scene aged 15 to 22.

Persevering with her painting through the conceptual 1990s whilst painting was considered unfashionable.


Relocating to Derbyshire in 2003 to create a larger studio and following four decades of fine-tuning her practice, it is in the past 20 years she has received recognition from collectors and curators; much of her work is now held in notable collections worldwide.

Developing her Glass and Voile Series whilst undertaking the Turps Correspondence Course in 2020, 2021 and 2022
Peskett’s recent work focuses on the fragility of life with underlying themes in her subjects drawn from her immediate environment.

Peskett gathers inspiration from photographs, applying paint to layers of primed silk, a unique process that she developed in 2015.
