In high school Georgina was the first female to enter the graphic arts program up to this point a male only domain. Sidetracked at university Georgina finished a degree in environmental studies.
After getting married, Georgina left Manitoba for the west coast. On the trip out she fell in love with the mountains.
'I had no idea the draw they would have on me' Georgina explained. 'It is where I feel the greatest connection to nature. They humble me yet feed my soul.'
With child raising and volunteer work behind her Georgina now paints full time. In her continuing quest for more knowledge she enrolled in theory courses at the Emily Carr school of fine art, courses on masters techniques, life drawing and workshops.
In an attempt to have a healthier studio Georgina started working in acrylic. Today the love of oil paint and the ability to use it in a safer manner has Georgina working in both mediums.
A storm over a mountain top, a streak of light across a glacier, a giant cedar fallen to the forest floor. These are the types of scenes that convey the grandeur, beauty and drama that Georgina sees around her.
As when she was a child she would escape to the grassy fields to be with nature today she hikes the mountains, through the forests, and along the shorelines to find that connection.
'I want to experience the outdoors with all my senses; feel the snowflakes on my eyelashes, hear the wind howl, see the flash of evening light, or smell the fresh mountain air. This is what I want to convey through my art so that you too can connect to the outdoor world around you.'
