George Lloyd is a Boston native who studied painting with Richard Merkin and Robert Hamilton at the Rhode Island School of Design and with Lester Johnson and Jack Tworkov while earning his M.F.A. at Yale University. In the late 1960s Lloyd accepted a teaching position at the University of California at Berkeley, and joined a figure drawing group that included among its members, Joan Brown, Gordon Cook, and Elmer Bischoff. The group met weekly, and collectively became an important influence on Lloyd’s work from that period.

Subsequent to teaching at U.C. Berkeley, Lloyd has held teaching positions at the University of Oregon, Wesleyan University, and Cornell University. He has been the recipient of Pollock Krasner and Elizabeth Foundation Grants. Lloyd’s work has been included in exhibitions at the Oakland (CA) Museum of Art and solo exhibitions of his work have been mounted at Wesleyan University, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, the University of Maine Museum of Art, and most recently (2006) at the Portland Museum of Art (ME).

Lloyd resides in Portland, Maine since 1983.
