Geoffrey Smith's early love of birds and nature was fostered when at age six his father took him on hunting trips in the then waterfowl rich San Pablo Bay, in the San Francisco Bay area of Northern California. He began carving duck decoys from wood as a child, and with his grandfather's encouragement, moved on to competitions and sculpting in clay. As a young adult, he moved to Bozeman, Montana to attend college and further his experiences outdoors. Today, he lives in Florida, where he sculpts in his studio and observes the wildlife that populates those wetlands.
Geoffrey's sculptures flow with grace and style, capturing the essence of each subject matter: fowl, safari animals, marine alike. Two of his recent commissions are an 8 foot bronze sculpture of flying geese for Nature Works, Inc., a non-profit conservation organization in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and a trio of playing ducks at 150% of life-size for a fountain at Phoebe Putnam Memorial Hospital in Albany, Georgia. Below is sampling of some of his beautiful bronze works. He has an extensive catalog that includes a variety of subjects. Please call or e-mail the Gallery with any inquiries. We are proud to represent the work of Geoffrey Smith.
