Geri’s affection for craftsmanship started at youth. She went to The School Of Industrial Arts in New York City, now known as the School of Art and Design. She went to The Art Student’s League in New York City to study with two celebrated around the world watercolorists, Mario Cooper and Charles Reid at Silvermine Workshops in Connecticut. Geri’s work was distributed in Reid’s watercolor guideline book, “Painting What You Want To See”.
In the 1980’s, Geri started offering her works of art professionally at festivals and celebrations around the nation. For a period, she trained understudies in watercolor painting at neighborhood schools and home workshops. After some time, she developed from realism to abstracts.
Working on canvas, she applies acrylic paint and imported papers to the surface. Utilizing a scratching apparatus, she pulls the paint over the canvas making dynamic examples of shading and plan. At long last the utilization of arrangement gold leaf, discovered articles and a three dimensional element conveys the work to another level of innovation.
