About the Artist
Georgette Kanach of Gray, Maine is an artist who creates masterpieces that embody the natural beauty of her great state. Born and raised in Jackman, Maine, Georgie is a self taught artist, with over 30 years of experience. Her lifelong love of nature is truly demonstrated in all her many works of art. Georgette''s artwork spans the range from two-dimensional paintings to relief carving, to airbrushing, and jewelry making. She works with natural mediums such as wood, antler, feathers and eggs, as well as glass, metal, and automobiles, not to mention conventional painting with oils and acrylics. Her hand-carved wood railings and mantelpieces are a specialty that adorn many beautiful homes. Georgette has been honored with numerous ribbons for her Egg and Wood carvings. The United States Postal Office has commissioned her work for commemorative postal seal and cancellation stamps. She has won first place in the State of Maine Migratory Waterfowl Stamp contest in 2009 and has received 2nd place twice. She also was named Artist of the Year for 2009 for the Ruffed Grouse Society and so the winter magazine cover was her painting, Autumn Delight. Her achievement as a Master Maine Guide was truly inspired by her desire to share her love of nature. Georgette now works at her studio in Gray, where she enjoys creating one of a kind pieces. ''I always remember loving Art and nature; it is a great gift that was given to me, and so by combining two loves of my life I am able to share them both in the art that I produce. I do what I love and love what I do.''
