Georgia Macmillan is a Dubai based Australian creative who offers a range of textiles and wallpapers for the home and beyond. The annual collections, featuring her original watercolour art, are inspired by a life well-travelled and the unique experience of living in the Middle East.
A trained broadcast news journalist, Georgia returned to her love of art seven years ago by painting acrylic works on canvas and various watercolour paintings, most of which were commission pieces. In 2015 Georgia explored the concept of digitally printing her art onto fabric and launched her debut range – The Indigo Series and Grey Days. The Bernalda Collection followed in 2016, and Collection III in 2017.
This year’s DESERT COLLECTION is inspired by the beauty of her desert surrounds – from the streets and gardens of Dubai, the floral motifs in Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the endless sand dunes of the Empty Quarter and the mountain and sea in Oman’s Jebel Akhdar and Ziggy Bay. Georgia’s next collection will be released towards the end of the year inspired by the spartan ochres and tan shades of the Pugliese towns of Fasano, Capitolo and Polignano a Mare and the deep azure blues of the Adriatic Sea.
Georgia is also a mother of two.
