Professional Artist DJ Geribo

Professional Artist DJ Geribo, cofounder of Eye Help Animals, LLC DJ has always been attracted to the arts and received her BA degree from UMass/Boston with a major in English. She mostly taught herself to paint, relying on many art books and spending a lot of time practicing to improve her skills over the years. She started with watercolor and gouache and particularly enjoys painting them on Yupo paper. She then started using pastels and enjoys the softness of working on velour paper. In 2005/’06 she spent a year painting oils exclusively to improve her skills in this medium. Recently she began painting with acrylics and enjoys the fast drying medium.

Her favorite subjects to paint are nature and animals. She enjoys painting a group of mushrooms at the base of a tree or a clump of wild flowers partially covered by dried leaves, those little miracles in nature that we drive or walk by everyday but never seem to notice. DJ is also very connected to animals and includes them in many of her paintings. “My mom grew up in Kansas, a farm girl, so I guess I got that feeling of closeness to all animals, including farm animals, from her.”

“My purpose in painting animals and nature is to show the beauty, the fragile condition of nature. I see this as a challenge in my art and hope I can reach others through my art so that they, too, will come to love and appreciate the beauty on earth that is ours to cherish and protect.”

DJ has shown her artwork in various shows around New Hampshire and Maine.

DJ is also interested in writing and is working on her first art book about her journey as an artist and has written several children’s stories.
