Georgia Gerber, born 1955, grew up in Chester County, Pennsylvania, studied sculpture and bronze casting at Bucknell University, and moved west to attend Graduate School at the University of Washington. Her professional career began at that time. Along with her husband and 18 year-old daughter she lives on rural Whidbey Island, Washington, where she operates her own studio and foundry with the assistance of two women artisans and her husband. She primarily works with life size animal and human figures, often incorporating architectural or abstract elements into the design. A career emphasis has been the creation of accessible public artwork that encourages viewer interaction.

"I like my sculpture to invite an interaction with its audience. This is often meant to be a direct physical interaction, but always I strive to engage the viewer's imagination. I tend to present an incomplete visual narrative; a story is suggested, a feeling evoked, and the viewers find themselves providing details."
