Geoff is an emerging Master of aqua-media, best known for his Rock Series and Cardboard Box Series. 
  • Startling realistic textures, colors, perspective, lighting and shadow
  • Compositions form an intriguing interplay of shapes and contrasting values, often with objects appearing to float on multiple planes. 

In 2016, Geoff shifted his focus to an abstract series and will share studio practices and techniques he has developed and learned over fifty years as a professional artist.  He will demonstrate an array of new materials, tools and techniques.  

  • Several daily demos
  • Personal instruction
  • Critiques
  • Plenty of painting time

Advanced beginners to masters will benefit from applying these new techniques and materials, suitable for abstract and representational painters.
