I was Born George Emordi; 23 years ago in Bayelsa State, Nigeria.
George Troy is my Artistic name and nickname right from High school,
I'm multi-talented and at Age 7; I discovered my talents including sketching Art, Football and Music in a country where Art or creativity is not supported nor Well appreciated.
My Family told me told me to stop drawing and Discard anything pertaining to Art at that Tender age and I did.
But at Age 13; My Love for Art emerged again and at Age 21 in October 2020, I moved away from my family, passionately and Stubbornly began to Draw and write again after graduating from an auto upholstery training in September 2020.
As a Self Taught portrait artist by practicing everyday and watching YouTube tutorials; I sold my first commissioned piece in November 2020.
