Val George trained in Fashion and Textiles, with a BA degree from Gloucestershire College of Art and design in 1973. After working as a fashion illustrator and studio manager, she also freelanced as a cartoonist, including covers for the Oldie magazine.
Moving down from London to Somerset, where the family has a 3-acre wild meadow, she began painting animals at night, and working in papier mache. Hares, foxes, wolves, tigers, lions, hounds and other creatures are sculpted in an expressive, elongated style. As well as quirky painted finishes, she also creates sculptural animals with sweeping lines, combining papier mache with a fine traditional gesso. Her work has been shown at several Battersea Art Fairs, the Glasgow Art Fair, the RWA and Devon and Kent galleries
