Geoffrey Carran is a painter and illustrator from New Zealand who now lives in Jan Juc, Victoria.
Since childhood Carran has filled journal after journal with visual ideas, plans and working drawings. If he wants to understand something, he draws it. “I never thought of it as art,” he says. “I never thought of it as a separate entity from anything else. Art’s a good way to explore anything and everything. It was easy to apply myself to.” He always intended to become an artist, undaunted by naysayers in late high school who told him he’d never make a living.
