Meet the 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. Her images reflect the interplay between drawing disciplines and printmaking using drypoint to show how one approach informs another. By including a technique, Chine Collé, the original drypoint image can be extended by adding specific colour impact from a variety of sources.
