Geer has been a MacDowell resident twice and has been awarded the Louis Sudler prize for excellence in art and the Joan Sovern Prize.

I think the most important part of drawing is seeing: The more I look around me, the more the world opens up as if under a magnifying lens the spoon in the cereal bowl and the floating bits of cereal lose their distinction there is fuzziness and wateryness in spots, glassiness, stillness, razored cracks of light, thick blackness. The world is strange and beautiful and full of life. Tara Geer
