Georgette Evans Grey has been active in the local art scene wherever she has lived, from San Clemente, California to Salisbury, Massachusetts to Socorro, New Mexico. She has honed her ability with transparent watercolor by continual practice of the art of painting and by participating in workshops with locally and nationally known artists. Her love of nature and her skill with watercolor combine to create works enhanced by observation and knowledge. Despite the seeming realism, her work reflects an inner emotional view that the artist refers to as interpretive realism, a style that offers more than the mirror of a photograph or the technical mastery of a draftsman.
Although her work might be called nature-centric, her interests reach beyond that to include her local environment wherever she has traveled and lived. In an article published June 1997 The Kenly News (Kenly, NC) says her North Carolina barn and rural paintings capture "what historians will come to view as an important part of the state's cultural heritage”.
