Farnsworth, Geoff

Geoff Farnsworth was born in Kimberley, B.C. in 1968.  He began his art training in Vancouver at Emily Carr, The Federation of Canadian Artists, and Capilano University.  Influential artist and teacher Kiff Holland urged him to move to New York City to attend the Art Students League in Manhattan.  Here he trained from 1997 to 2002 by working full-time from the human model before experimenting in new directions under abstract painters William Scharf and Frank O’Cain.  A post 9-11 environment with tightening visa restrictions finally prompted him to follow his longtime urge to move to Toronto to paint in the same city as his sister, Gillian, also an artist. Here he focused on his work for five years before moving to Thunder Bay with his fiancé to have their first child.  Working on the beautiful north shore of Lake Superior increased his desire to bring elements of landscape into his painting.  Geoff currently lives and paints in Niagara Falls.  His paintings have been shown in New York, Washington DC, Minneapolis, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay and Stockholm, Sweden.  He is currently represented by Loch Gallery (Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary), Canvas Gallery in Toronto, Chenier Fine Arts in Thunder Bay, and Kurbatoff Gallery in Vancouver.  You can visit his website at http://www.gfarnsworth.net
