Geraldine has worked as a restorer in the Conservation departments of the National Gallery in Washington, the Mauritshuis in The Hague, the Hamilton Kerr Institute in Whittlesford (Cambridge) and the Royal Collection in Windsor.
Building on her experience and extensive knowledge of materials and techniques of the Old Masters, Geraldine enjoys exploring the possibilities of working with various mediums and methods such as watercolour, oils, etching and monoprinting.
Strongly drawn to nature as a starting point for all her work, she spends a lot of time in the Scottish Isles and recently in Zeeland. The shifting of the weather patterns of light and shade across the clouds, the sea and the land of these two seemingly different countries keep inspiring her work.
