About Georgia Fullerton

I am a published, international visual artist that passionately explores the relationship between the real and the imagined in my artworks.

Emotion, self-identity and memories of girlhood and my Jamaican roots inspire the expressions in my latest works. Painting with an intuitive approach, I use bold colour, exotic line, pattern and design. My work ranges from portraiture and figurative to abstract expressionism.

I work from my home studio in Ajax, Ontario, Canada
