About Geraldine Besgrove founder of TheArtsBee

British-based artist, illustrator and printmaker, Geraldine Besgrove works from her home studio in the Surrey Hills. She studied Fine Art in both London and Barcelona and worked in the media and print industry
for many years. A lover of all things colourful and unusual her work is inspired by her immediate environment as well as remembered environments, people and places. Her works are an amalgamation of things past and present, quirky creatures and nostalgic characters from fact and fiction. This collection of inspirations is reflected in how the work is made, by the building up of many layers and images using different drawing and printing techniques. Each work is unique and takes advantage of the random happy accidents that can occur during the painting and printing processes.

Tutoring and ArtyBees Classes

I run private tutoring sessions for both adults and children interested in art or children aiming for art scholarships. During the school term and holidays I run art sessions for small groups of children aged 5-18 under the name ArtyBees. I also offer children's art parties. I am also available for teaching in schools and am fully DBS checked.
