Geoff Rushton About
Born in 1986, I grew up on a family farm in North Yorkshire, England.
After school I went on to study 3D design blacksmithing. Shortly after finishing, however, I injured my back quite badly meaning I was unable to smith.
After a long period of despair, I turned to stone carving, which requires much less back movement. Techniques which I learnt with stone translated to wood and I soon found myself exploring and experimenting with a myriad of techniques and materials, the exploration and synergy is now the main focus of my work.
After my first exhibition in august 2010, I was absolutely blown away by the attention my work received, in the aftermath I quit my job and am currently setting out on my journey as a professional artist.
Art is my life, my body and mind are simply tools, created to create.
My life will now follow my art, wherever it takes me.
