Born in Cody, Wyoming in 1951, Geoff Parker spent his formative years in a rural setting, nurturing a deep love of the land. After attending California's Academy of Art in San Francisco, he returned to Wyoming and spent the next fifteen years cowboying and working for commercial fishing outfits in Alaska. For the past twenty years Parker has devoted himself exclusively to painting. He prefers painting on location for the purity of color and atmosphere. A student of the world around him, Parker has a rich knowledge of his subjects, which range from high mountain landscapes to seascapes to cowboys and chickens. His bold yet sensitive paintings reflect his interests, which are eclectic. Parker has been honored with several solo exhibitions in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, California and Cody, Wyoming. An exhibition of works painted along the route taken by Lewis and Clark was shown in St, Louis, Missouri on the bicentennial of the expedition in 2003.
