A little Kuna girl off the coast of the Republic of Panama. The Kuna are an semi-autonomous indigenous tribe that live on the Caribbean side of Panama. Having been born in Panama I grew up seeing these women and girls wearing these striking colorful outfits.
George’s paintings are inspired by his native Panama, where he was born and raised. The artworks are quiet, thoughtful representations of both city and country life. It might surprise the viewer, given the subtle sophistication of George’s paintings, to learn that he has also been a professional animator with the Walt Disney Company for over 30 years. He directed the 1988 feature length animated film Oliver and Co., and worked on other renowned projects including The Lion King. Now, George’s professional focus is on animation for Disney theme parks and special projects in China. When he’s not animating for Disney, he is painting on location in exciting locales including Shanghai and Panama, or from his home in Southern California.
