About the Artist
George is an illustrator currently living in the United Kingdom. Although primarily focusing on architecture and landscape in the USA, something that derived from spending his second year of university studying in California.
Living and studying in California changed his style for the better. Experiencing a big change in his environment and living out of the country for the first time inspired him to take his work in a new direction. His passion for Americana and architecture has been prevalent in all his projects since.
