Geoff

Keller

VASE ART

Although a native-born Hoosier, Geoff lived and worked on the southern Oregon coast for most of his adult life. Upon early retirement, Geoff relocated to Nashville. Knowing at the time Nashville was Indiana's premier artist's colony, little did he realize at the time that he would eventually become one of the local artists.
 
The subjects Geoff chooses for his art have primarily been native North American birds, but future work will also include a selection of mammals. The drawings he creates are a combination of archival ink and pencil and are comprised mostly of very tiny dots—tens of thousands of very tiny dots. These drawings are on aspen wooden vases and sculptures which Geoff also makes. For durability, these drawings are trapped between multiple coats of satin spray lacquer.
 
He credits the late Bill Zimmerman—Indiana's most famous bird artist and Nashville resident—as the one who encouraged Geoff to pursue bird art, as well as giving him multiple detailed lessons on bird morphology. Regrettably, Bill never saw any of my later work; only my first, and very primitive attempt at drawing birds.
