Artist's Statement: The light on the landscape fascinates me. It reveals form, color and shadow - three essentials to any painting. My challenge is to capture them in oil paint and occasionally in watercolor. I prefer to paint outside and on site - which means painting quickly before the light changes. My plein air sketches can stand alone, but they are often the foundation for larger paintings done in the studio. Hopefully my work will give the viewer a sense of place - the time of day, the temperature, the colour of the light . . .

Geoff's interest in painting began with children's classes in Montreal taught by Arthur Lismer and Anne Savage. Over the years he has furthered that early education with workshops taught by Christopher Schink, Judi Betts, Connie Hayes, and particularly, Colin Page.

Geoff has won awards for his work in Haines, Alaska, Whitehorse, Yukon and Rockland, Maine. Over the last 5 years Geoff has been juried into shows in midcoast Maine including River Arts, Damariscotta and the annual "Art in Maine" exhibit in Boothbay. He is a juried member of The Federation of Canadian Artists and Oil Painters of America.
