Charles Gere trained at the Birmingham School of Art under Edward R.Taylor, where he embraced the aesthetics of the Arts and Crafts Movement. He went on to become an illustrator for the Kelmscott Press and designed the frontispiece for William Morris's 'News from Nowhere’ in 1891. In 1904, Gere settled at Painswick near Stroud with his half-sister, the watercolourist, Margaret Gere (1878–1965).
