Georgina Kreutzer has been honing her expertise in fine art since childhood. Her artwork is typically recognisable by ethereal textures and a soft palette, juxtaposed with instances of metallics, high detailed still-lifes, and bold photo shoot style portraits.
Although Georgina identifies as predominantly autodidactic, she attended the National Art School in Sydney for a selective, intensive programme in 2009. Late in her undergraduate degree she began posting work to an Instagram profile, which gradually gained interest, and amassed a following of other enthused, creative individuals.
Her work has been exhibited in Sydney, Byron Bay, and the Gold Coast, and many originals hang in homes in Australia, New Zealand, UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Spain, Mexico, and the UAE.
She currently lives in Sydney, and between studying the Master of Architecture at USyd spends much of her time completing custom artwork commissions and exploring the city.

After the first portrait I drew in my high school art class, I became captivated with the challenge of photorealistic drawing and the meticulous attention to detail that it required. The labor-intensive commitment to photorealism caused me to feel driven to continue improving my technique. In college I spent a majority of my free time drawing portraits with colored pencil. Being in the age of growing social media platforms, I decided to share my lengthy process online through time-lapse videos. I began drawing and filming portraits of people that a broad audience would be familiar with, including celebrities, athletes, and public figures. To my surprise, my work began to attract a large audience, with videos surpassing 1 million views. Along with my studies as an art student, I continued doing this throughout my college career. This generated a large global audience for my work, with over 1 million subscribers.
I received my B.A. in Studio Art at Emmanuel College, in the vibrant city of Boston, Massachusetts.
