Geri trained as a painter and only discovered wood engraving several years later through the works of Thomas Bewick, the father of wood engraving. She is drawn to subjects such as natural forms, gardens and vernacular architecture, all of which provide endless challenges in rendering tone and texture through the tiny marks of the engraver’s tools. She is fascinated by the juxtaposition of the natural and the man-made and often chooses subjects which explore this. Her series ‘Uninvited Guests’ began by recording the appearances of various creatures co-existing in an old French farmhouse, and has now extended to the inhabitants of a Somerset barn.


杰瑞最早学习绘画,后来通过木刻之父托马斯·比维克(Thomas Bewick)的作品才发现木口木刻。她对自然形态、园林和乡土建筑等主题情有独钟,这些主题都为通过雕刻工具的微小痕迹来呈现色调和质感提供了无穷的挑战。她着迷于自然与人造的并置,并经常选择探索相关的主题。她的 "不速之客 "系列起先是记录法国一个古老的农舍里生物,现在已经扩展到英国萨默塞特农庄里的各种生命。
