Ges Wilson moved to Cornwall in the mid-1980s, and has since made St Ives her home. Previously she had studied art at Loughborough and Exeter Colleges of Art, and came to Penzance as an art teacher.

She is a member of the Penwith Society of Artists and also works freelance as an artist for the Tate St Ives. She is a former principal of St Ives School of Painting. Her semi-abstract landscapes are inspired by the 'elemental energy' of Cornwall. She exhibits widely, and her work is in private collections in the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
