Georgie can’t wait to get started once the raffle is drawn.

So if you haven’t been down to see the Archibald Prize yet grab yourself a ticket in the raffle while you are there.

A spokesperson for the Gallery said the portrait prize will be, “A truly unique and priceless work of art and experience to treasure.

“Georgie’s portraits in her distinctive edgy and intricate style have earned her accolades.”

The spokesperson added, “Funds raised go towards expanding our Regional Gallery’s collection for all to enjoy.”
