Meet your tutor: Geraldine Walkington

Geraldine is a painter printmaker, working predominantly in two areas of interest, mountains and flora. She works directly in the environment, or from her sketchbook, in a variety of media. This year her focus has been charcoal and ink studies, which she has translated into drypoint and etching. She creates images that reflect the interplay between drawing, paint and print, disciplines and materials, showing how one approach informs another.
