Geoff was born and raised in Gulfport, Mississippi. He has exhibited in galleries and museums across the U.S. in cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston and Atlanta, as well as abroad in Tokyo, Norway and Austria. For his Magic Lanterns project and exhibition, Geoff chose a universally entertaining subject, ghost stories, to explore his fascination with the concept of time. The exhibition consists of a three-room diorama set which presents a ghost story in 7th scale miniature. There are twenty paintings, each setting the stage for a classic style ghost story which unfolds in the Magic Lanterns book that accompanies the project. A soundtrack will also play as a backdrop for the show.
