Georgianna C. Conger was born in Portland, Oregon but moved to Aiken SC at six months of age. Born to a family of avid sportsmen and animal advocates, the artist grew up with countless dogs, horses, cats, chickens, ducks, geese and goats.  Introduced to a love of art by her mother, a favorite memory was pouring over books of George Ford Morris, Alfred J. Munnings, Rosa Bonheur, and George Stubbs to name a few. Her family ran a boarding and breeding stable behind the house on the edge of the historic Hitchcock Woods. The artist learned to ride on those hallowed acres of forest and still rides there today. Her love of art began early: she began formal art lessons at 11 years old.  A graduate of Sweet Briar College in Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in studio art, the artist was also on the varsity riding team for four years and was head of the school’s riding council her junior year.  Georgianna married Hamilton, Ma. native Randolph A. Wolcott and they have a daughter Caroline Courtney born in 1998. They live next door to the house she grew up in and still have horses in the barn behind the house.

    The artist has been able to combine her love of animals with her chosen profession.  A realist with a keen eye for each subject’s individual character, it is her love of animals that drives her artistic sensibilities.  She serves on the Board of Directors of the Aiken Steeplechase Association and her interest in the sport is reflected in many of her works.  Her paintings and drawings also express the artist’s love of many horse sports that she still participates in today such as showing, fox hunting, and eventing. While her favorite medium is oil, she is accomplished in other areas including pencil, acrylics, and watercolor.  Her works are on display in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Jamaica and Bermuda.

 

The artist is currently accepting commissions.
