Meet Georgia

Headshot cropped     Originally from California, Georgia moved to Australia in 1984 with her husband to develop a Cotton Farm an hour west of Moree in outback New South Wales.  While living in the Bush, Georgia painted as a creative outlet and a way to cope with the isolation and loneliness of a new lifestyle in a strange but fascinating new country.

Since 1995, Georgia, her husband and their three boys have lived in Mudgee, NSW.  They put in a 200 acre vineyard and enjoy the country lifestyle and natural beauty of the gorgeous wine growing region. The artist’s work is a reflection of her emotional response to the world around her, painting subjects in an expressive manner.

Having completed a Bachelor of Arts in Communication at California State University Sacramento, Georgia feels painting is an interesting way to communicate with others on many different levels.

Georgia’s paintings are diverse in subject matter as well as technique, often displaying her risk-taking, adventurous nature. Collectors are always interested in what the artist is experimenting with lately and look forward to her next step in the creative journey.

Georgia has spent one month per year at Hamilton Island, Great Barrier Reef as Artist in Residence (4 years) where she exhibits her work and teaches classes.  She loves travelling and sharing her passion for painting with others, helping them to discover their own creativity. Georgia is the Official Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort/Blue Mountains Artist in Residence Nov 2012 & May 2014 and Cable Beach Resort Broome, Western Australia in July 2014.

Georgia is a trained and certified Golden Artist Educator and Official International Ambassador for Daniel Smith Paints and creator of the Georgia Mansur Palette by Daniel Smith Watercolors.
