Jürgen Geier


Jürgen Geier
Jürgen Geier was born in 1963 in Bietigheim-Bissingen  South Germany.

From his early youth, he was fascinated by ships, the sea and painting. He built, owned, and sailed boats through all his years and made a living by various jobs, including being a public servant at the German Post, as well as being an apprenticed gilder or a glassfiber worker at the Abeking & Rassmussen shipyard.

Between 1991 and 1997, he built his own gaff-schooner, which later became his part time home and atelier. Since 2000, he lives  in North Germany, near Bremen.
In 2003, he started business as a freelance artist and, still being strongly impressed by the sea, focused on maritime subjects.

Jürgen participated in art exhibitions in Germany, the Netherlands or Switzerland and  was honored with several art awards.
