Hand-made Signs and Sayings
Geraldine is based here in the Algarve and creates bespoke signs and pictures.
“Born in Zambia, schooled in Zimbabwe, Malawi and South Africa and having worked in Angola, Mozambique and Ethiopia, half of my heart is, and always will be, in Africa. The other half is here in Portugal, for after two years of travelling through Egypt, Israel and many Mediterranean countries I find there is no place like home … the Algarve. I live in the countryside with my husband, an ever fluctuating number of abandoned dogs and a myriad of ducks and geese (not for the pot!)”
I have always been interested in calligraphy and now with the advent of so many fonts on the computer I am having a field day! I love quirky sayings and things that bring a smile.
Have recently done all the place names and table names for a wedding, I really enjoyed doing this.
I am happy to make bespoke signs, any size, any colour, any font, any wording (within reason!) … I especially love to use reclaimed wood.”
Geraldine is available for private commissions. She also advertises pieces as they become available on various sites on FaceBook such as ‘Anything and Everything Algarve’ and ‘Sell Your Stuff Algarve Dot Com’ to name just a few.
