A self-taught artist, Geoff original calling was numbers and he gained a degree in Maths from York University in 2004 before starting on a career in finance. He painted as a hobby but found a strong demand for his work and so returned to his Welsh roots in the Maelor (on the North Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire 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.
As well as painting, he runs the popular Copper Tree Gallery with his eldest sister, with picture framing by the gallery being nominated in the top ten finalists of the national Picture Business Competition in both 2008 and 2009 and displayed at the Spring Fair at the NEC.
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.
Geoff is an artist member of the Fine Art Trade Guild.
