Hi! I am Geri deGruy. Most people call me Ger. I love to create, with fabrics and yarn and thread and paint and words and music and just about anything I get my hands or eyes on.
I was born in Pennsylvania, and have also lived in Ohio, New Jersey, North Carolina, Alabama, and Colorado.
I've been a lot of things over the years: a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend. A Brownie, Girl Scout, student (Duke University, University of South Alabama), teacher, occasional poet (and lover of poetry), cartoonist, and artist. A nurse, health care administrator, classical pianist, mental health counselor, a beadmaker, jewelrymaker, papermaker, bookmaker (as in books, not bets), laceknitter, quiltmaker, and creator of original mixed media and freeform fabric-and-fiber artworks.
I am in possession of a broad Midwestern sense of humor.
I almost always drive the speed limit, to my family's chagrin.
With at least eight hours of sleep, I am at my best and full of ideas and amusement.
Meat is not in my diet. There are a number of reasons.
As long as I can remember, I've been both a girl and a woman.
I don't go to meetings if I can help it.
If I can't be in my studio, I want to be outside with lively things.
I can't go into a store that has any kind of fiber without touching almost everything.
I'm incredibly thankful for my husband and "children" (they're all adults) and all we learn in our life together.
My aspiration is to learn how to be in this moment, just as it is.
