Geraly Unite-O'Day* started drawing as a child, studying and copying doodles left on a notepad, by her mother, next to the telephone. Around the same time, her grandmother taught her how to sew - first, by hand and later, by machine. Her first successful attempt at writing was a 5th grade award winning sci-fi short story about power hungry extraterrestrial potatoes with laser shooting eyes invading earth.
She continued her education at Columbia College Chicago where she studied Fashion Design/Illustration and Poetry.
After graduation, she worked in the production depts. of various apparel companies (in Chicago & San Francisco) for 10+ years. After marrying Mr. Great Guy, becoming a mother, and drawing, writing & sewing for her children, she rediscovered drawing, writing & sewing for herself again.
She enjoys drawing,sewing, writing/blogging, daydreaming, movie watching, crafting, knitting, lindyhopping and reading (about all the aforementioned things).
(*Geraly (the G is the same G, as in Gerald or Geronimo) rhymes with Sara Lee. Unite is pronounced oo-knee-tay)
