My name is Geraldine. I am an artist.

I grew up in Flint, MI, attended the local schools where I developed my interest in art at an early age. After raising my kids I returned to college, but it was for a degree in computers, art had another idea for me.

Art was my first love and was calling me back to it. I've learned that you need to please yourself and do what you love, or you'll never be truly happy. My happiness is painting. Time flies as I paint. My paintings become larger as the stories they tell become more fascinating.

I am a Artist, I tell you a story with my brushes, my paints and a canvas.

My name is Geri, I am an Artist.
