Georgia is well-versed in all media but prefers painting in water media for ease of travel, clean-up, and immediate visual feedback. She is passionate about painting en plein air because it's fast, fresh, and exhilarating. The goal is to capture the scene's essence before you amidst changing light, weather, and not-always-pleasant conditions, something only the heartiest painters can manage. Mansur has competed in international plein air events in the USA and received 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 storytelling, and how the subject makes you think, 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 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.
