Her art embodies two developments in the art world: the impact of postmodern theory on art practice; and the rise of photography and mass-media techniques as modes of artistic expression.

En la primavera de 1995 Jimmy descubrió que tenía leucemia.
Durante un año de tratamiento, vivió en reclusión y silencio. Hasta 1998 los dibujos fueron toda su vida. Este libro recoge sus obras de dicho período, un mundo poético que se rige por sus propias leyes. En él, las ballenas bailan y cantan ante el asombrado y triste espectador. Las lágrimas de un conejo hacen brotar flores del suelo reseco. Los poetas nadan en piscinas sin agua, y las mariposas, con sus alas de mil brillantes colores, cubren a las muchachas con una preciosa colcha multicolor.
Writing together with Timothy Wyllie, the angel Georgia details the events of Earth’s ancient history from 16,500 BC to 8,000 BC • Chronicles the disappearance of Lemuria, the rise of Atlantean technology and piracy, and the first wave of rebel angels incarnating as Atlantean slaves • Explains the 3 eras of Atlantis and how the island was finally destroyed in 1198 BC • Interwoven throughout with observations about Timothy Wyllie’s current and previous lives, such as his years of involvement with the Process Church After 200 millennia of celestial quarantine in the wake of Lucifer’s angelic revolt, Earth and the rebel angels isolated here are being welcomed back into the benevolent and caring Multiverse. Writing together with Timothy Wyllie, Georgia--a rebel angel who took on the role of Watcher after the rebellion--provides her personal account of Earth from 16,500 BC to 8,000 BC, a period that encompasses the first two eras of Atlantis. Georgia shares her experiences being present for the final disappearance of Lemuria and the loss of their spiritual system. She describes advanced Lemurian technology that was designed for the betterment of the Earth and its people, and was then lost, and the aggressive piracy of the Atlanteans, who preyed on the Lemurian survivors. Detailing the three eras of Atlantis and how the island’s final destruction was in 1198 BC, she explains the rise of Atlantis as a technological power.
She reveals the quarrels between the Pleiadians and the Sirians during this period and explores the myths of the Anunnaki, reputed to have arrived on Earth to mine for gold. Georgia interweaves her story with observations about Timothy Wyllie’s current and previous lives, focusing here on his involvement with the Process Church as well as his experiences with bizarrely orchestrated orgies, psychometrics, and psychedelic culture in Europe in the 1970s. Georgia shares her words, in part, to awaken some of the more than 100 million rebel angels currently living their human lives, most unaware of their angelic heritage and struggling with their sense of being different. She reveals how a mortal incarnation for a rebel angel is an opportunity to redeem the past and help prepare the way for the transformation of global consciousness now beginning as the rebel-held planets, including Earth, are being welcomed back into the Multiverse.
여행에도 종류가 있다. 모든 걸 훌훌 털어버리고자 홀로 떠나는 여행, 잊을 수 없는 기억을 공유하고자 연인과 함께하는 여행, 그리고 답답한 일상을 탈출하고자 급하게 짐을 싸는 여행. 하지만 여기, 가슴 깊이 부러운 건 물론이요, 독특하기로 소문난 여행이 있다. 바로 키만 큰 30세 아들과 깡마른 60세 엄마의 기가 막힌 세계여행이다. 엄마의 환갑잔치를 위해 모아둔 돈을 가만 들여다보던 아들은 차라리 이 돈으로 엄마와 세계여행을 하는 게 낫겠어, 라며 일을 저질렀다. 하던 일도 그만두고 엄마가 운영하던 작은 가게에 쳐들어가 ‘세계를 무대로 신나게 한 판 놀고 오자!’고 말해버린 것! 그런데 당황했을 법도 한 이 엄마, 며칠 고민하는가 싶더니 덥석 아들의 제안을 받아들였다! 중국과 동남아시아, 중동의 이야기를 먼저 엮은 것으로, 여행 1막에 해당한다. 책 속에는 ‘정말? 과연? 실제로 그랬어?’ 싶은 흥미로운 이야기들과 여행 내내 엄마에게 재롱잔치라도 부리는 듯한 아들의 조금은 철이 없는, 하지만 훈훈한 속내가 가득해 읽는 이로 하여금 잔잔한 엄마미소를 짓게 만든다. 더불어 여행의 여운이 생생하게 담긴 사진도 눈을 뗄 수 없게 한다.
