The Artist

Geoff Smith was originally from Hartlepool
in County Durham, but after being made redundant he moved in
1990 to Manchester and joined Greater Manchester Police where
he still serves.

Geoff has always had a keen interest in drawing
and painting and was encouraged at an early age to make a career
in art. However, he went on to work as a Thermal Insulation
Engineer, working on and off-shore throughout the British Isles.

As a result of a meeting with a former colleague
Phil Harding he was invited to join him in sharing studio space
at Vernon Mill, Stockport, which resulted in the first showing
of his works with a then newly formed group ‘Vernon Mill Artists’.

Geoff had his first ‘solo’ exhibition at
the Blyth Gallery in Manchester city centre in July 2002 with
an exhibition titled “Observations” , where
he was described by the Gallery as “A very versatile
painter with a variety of styles”.

Later Geoff left Vernon Mill to build his
own studio in Sale, erected in the grounds of his home, where
he now spends most of his spare time and enjoys every minute.

Geoff says:

“Due to my love of travel and
never being one to miss an opportunity for exposure, I have
supplied and sold works across the globe – in New York, St
Kitts, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Eire and across the North
of England”.

He is currently working on a series of paintings
inspired by a recent visit to the 120th Durham Miners Gala,
in his cultural homeland of County Durham, he is in the process
of arranging an exhibition at next year’s Gala.
