Born in 1946 Geraldine grew up near Chichester Harbour and trained at Goldsmiths College School of Art – London and Farnham School of Art – Surrey. A Craft Council major award in 1986 enabled her to reduce her occasional teaching and she now concentrates full time on hand weaving cloth to wear.
From her earliest years Geraldine has painted and is inspired by her surroundings – land or seascapes. Since leaving college in 1968 she has designed and handwoven cloth, attracted by the colours, textures and rich sculptural way it moves when worn. The way cloth hangs or flows is an endless source of inspiration as are silk and wool fibres because they take colour so well and absorb and reflect light so differently. Playing with colour, either geometrically organised or flowing across the whole fabric is a continuing source of excitement! The resulting cloths are made into scarves and simply shaped clothes that hopefully will be well used!
