Georgia Fullerton is a fine artist, arts-educator and expressive arts therapy practitioner. She is on the board of directors for OEATA (Ontario Expressive Arts Therapy Association) and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, Ontario. She also holds a seat on the Program Advisory Committee for the School of Media Art and Design at Durham College.
Georgia’s dynamic art explores the relationship between the real and imagined, and reveals her emotions and memories of her girlhood and Jamaican roots. With an intuitive approach and an abstract expressionist style, Georgia’s work explores the phenomenon of relational energy through colour, form and texture – and is exhibited in public and private collections throughout Canada, United States, Australia and the Caribbean.
As the creator of an arts in health-based business named JustGeorgia-Expressive Arts to Heal the Heart and founder of online brand, FULLFINEART, Georgia designs and facilitates workshops and community events through the expression of art. She continues to partner creatively with a wide range of clients like The Royal Ontario Museum, Lakeridge Health, Birkdale Residence, Elementary Teachers of Toronto, Durham Black Educators Network, Durham District School Board and The Regional Municipality of Durham.
Georgia’s mission is to develop awareness around the arts and engage communities in the acceptance of art making as a life skill. She has a part-time private practise offering Expressive Arts Therapy with a studio space in Ajax, Ontario. Georgia is currently working as the Cultural Development Coordinator for the city of Oshawa and is pursuing her RP status with the College of Psychotherapists of Ontario. Georgia creates her original art at her home studio in Ajax, Ontario.
“I follow a path of spontaneous exploration and stay sensitively aware of feelings, thoughts, sounds and movements as I create–keeping process over product as my primary goal.” Georgia Fullerton
