In an unusual route to becoming an artist, Geoff gained a degree in Maths from York University in 2004 before starting on a career in finance. While painting for pleasure he found a demand for his work and this lead to a change in heart, returning to North Wales border to take up art as a profession.
Geoff’s art was first published within a few months of turning full-time and limited editions continue to be published. His work is collected internationally and has been a top-seller in local galleries.
Mainly painting landscapes with the occasional figurative piece, the idea behind the paintings is simply that each should set the scene or tell a tale – visual storytelling. With the exception of Geoff’s local scenes they all come straight out of his imagination. He typically paints on canvas with acrylics, with several layers of paint building up the vibrant colours, although also working in mixed media on thick paper – mostly watercolour but also with ink, pencil, charcoal and gouache thrown in.
