George was born in Chicago but it is whilst living in Chicago that the trade winds took hold of him and would not let him go. His initial fascination was sailing but, in time this grew into a love of kites and indeed anything to do with wind and kites. It is rumoured that the off cuts from sails did not make great shapes so George cut them down to stripes and started sewing them together. This gave him his trademark style known throughout the world. As long ago as 1976 created his company ‘flying colours’ and started travelling the world to international kite festivals.

More recently he has teamed up with his partner Melanie Walker who has her own unique style. Check out their web site
