Geoff’s art teacher wanted him to take art instead he took the sensible path and ended up with a BA (Hons) in history. The ‘sensible’ path lead to employment in outdoor education and archaeology before returning to study for a diploma in occupational therapy. While working in the NHS he met and worked with the artist and psychotherapist Kavi Vadamootoo who introduced him to the power of art and the importance of creativity.

In 1997 Geoff and his family moved to Scotland where he decided to work full time as a willow weaver. Since then a variety of commissions and work with other artists has lead him to explore other materials and how they can be used sculpturally.
