Georgia is well versed in all media but prefers painting in watermedia for ease of travel, clean up and immediate visual feedback. She has a passion for painting en plein air because its fast, fresh, and exhilarating~ the goal being to capture the essence of the scene before you amidst changing light, weather and not always pleasant conditions~ something only the heartiest of painters can manage. Mansur has competed in International plein air events in the USA and was recipient of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Assoc of the Walker Scholarship for Excellence. Mansur has been a faculty member and presenter at the International Plein Air Convention in Monterey , Tucson, San Diego and San Francisco. Georgia feels painting is about communication~ not so much a photographic copy but more story telling and how the subject makes you feel~ putting your emotions and mood into the painting and making it very personal and moving. Students have nicknamed Georgia ‘the Art Whisperer’ because she helps them express their creative passions and develops a deeper connection with themselves and nature.
Georgia Mansur is a trained and certified International Golden Artist Educator and is an International Ambassador for Daniel Smith Paints, creating the ‘Georgia Mansur Palette’ by Daniel Smith Paints, Seattle.
Mansur has just released an instructional painting DVD and has her own signature Georgia Mansur Brushes by Rosemary&Co Brushes in the UK.
