About the Artist:
Geraldine Simmons was born in London, England but at an early age moved to Australia. At about 10 years of age Geraldine experienced the most incredible flow of creativity that seemed so effortless and exhilarating that she amazed her art teacher, her classmates as well as herself. That was Geraldine's first realization that being an artist was her calling.Over time, Geraldine's love of drawing has evolved into the detailed real-life portraits of wildlife that she draws today in either pastel and colored pencil, or scratchboard. These mediums enable her to capture the true nature and essence that bring each animal to life. Geraldine has exhibited both locally and abroad receiving many invitations to donate her works to well-known animal conservation groups such as Humane Society International, Sea Shepherd and Borneo Orangutan Society. Gaining signature membership to the Artist's For Conservation was one of her proudest achievements along with being the recipient of the 2010 AFC Conservation Artist Award for May of that year.


  • Hands by Geraldine Simmons showcases the human like hands of a gorilla simply resting on its belly. This scratchboard piece will look gorgeous in any room of your home or office. I draw wildlife simply because I love animals and for the creative adventures that my drawing process brings. When I draw I aspire to show that the eyes of an animal are no different to ours; that they feel emotions, are a part of loving families and are sentient beings just like us. Before I start a piece the eyes are what I notice first. They mesmerize me. These beautiful creatures are calling me to express that they are not just mere commodities to be exploited, used or forgotten. I specialize in mixed media that includes colored pencil, pastel and gouache. I work in layers, building on one color upon the next to attain the light, shade, tone and texture that leads to a realistic effect. I mainly use gouache for fur detail and the finishing touches using a fine tipped watercolor paintbrush. ~Geraldine Simmons Available for purchase: A Reproduction of a 8" x 10" Scratchboard drawing.
