Geraldine Brake

GERALDINE BRAKE is from Marystown, Newfoundland. Coping with the loss of her son, Shawn Gerard Brake, Geraldine moved to Vancouver in 1989 with her daughter, Lesley. She found an apartment and a job, but life was difficult. She got into a drug scene that took her downhill. Now for her, drugs and life don’t mix. Art takes her to a different world. She paints plants and flowers — daffodils, tulips, and poppies. “At first when I got into art, my head was into it. Now I am much more focused. I’m still learning, and I love it. I can picture a lot of things in my mind but when I see it on the canvas it’s so much more beautiful.”
