    Geoff Hargraves
    I have been interested in art all my life, bit my school didn’t have an art teacher, and I left school at 16 to start work. Occasionally throughout the years if I was working for some time ina place and saw an art course I would take one, but it wasn’t until at 60 when redundancy ended my working life that I could begin taking courses and began linocut printmaking. A back injury led me to painting, and now I paint and make reduction linocut prints.
    I have been full time at my art practice in the last 4 years, and have been selling works at art shows, on line and in exhibitions.
    I have been in several student exhibitions, a group exhibition and 2 solo exhibitions.
    I have my prints I homes in USA, England, Ukraine and various states in Australia. My paintings have found homes in the eastern states.
    Grew up in a small coastal village and used to surf and explore the beaches and bush around my home. Later I began sailing and have raced across oceans and in various countries around the world. I’ve had a boat on Sydney Harbour for over 20 years, and have a love of nature and landscapes. My prints often are inspired by my photography when I’m out walking my dog, often featuring a macro view of plants, as well as landscapes.
    My paintings are often inspired by beaches and the harbour.

        I left school at 16 and worked in various Telecommunications companies ( Both Public and private enterprises) until 2015 when made redundant the day before 60th birthday.
        I always had an interest in art, but it was only then that I was able to take short courses and begin my art education.

        I have been in several student exhibitions, and in 2018 had a joint exhibition with 3 other artists at Gauge gallery in Glebe.

        I was invited to exhibit in a Favourites exhibition by the gallery owner late 2018.
        Easter 2019, my painting “ up past the forks” won the painting prize at Wooli art show, and July 2019 was again invited to show my work in another exhibition at Gauge gallery in Glebe.

        I have entered paintings and prints at each of the last 3 years at Sydney’s Royal Easter Show, and have sold at each of these shows.

        I have my Reduction prints in homes in Australia, England, USA and the Ukraine.
