Born in Africa in 1945, Geoffrey spent his early childhood in New Zealand and then moved to the South West of England, where he has lived and worked ever since.
In the 1960s he attended Bournemouth College of Art.
From 1986 he was part of the fraternity of abstract painters who draw much of their inspiration from the beauty of that coastline and the example from that particular strand of British art that grows out of the St. Ives school of painting.
Since 2000 he has been producing more figurative pieces. His work has been shown in established art galleries across the south of England, from Cambridge to St. Ives, also in Belfast, Northern Ireland and in New Zealand.
In 2004 Geoffrey was the subject of a half-hour television documentary, for Meridian television titled In the Frame.
