Swanage-based artist and author Geoff Francis: "If there's a God, it's nature"  

The Daily Echo 13/2/17


Every inch of Geoff Francis's quirky Swanage home is filled with creativity.

The walls are barely visible behind the huge canvases of varying colours and themes proudly displayed in every room, while sculptures stand in the corners.

Story and poetry books are piled on the desks, albums full of stunning wildlife photographs are dotted around and upstairs in the attic workshop,
a coffee table is waiting to be upcycled.

Each of the works has its own story to tell. "This one is called Imagine No John Lennon," explains Geoff, while another depicts the melting of the polar ice caps and a sculpture he points out has an anti-war message. 

It's clear that Geoff's creations are united by a singular passion - to protect our planet. A vegan for 45 years, and a staunch supporter of animal rights, Geoff has been hugely involved in charity work raising awareness of endangered species, animal welfare and the ways in which we are destroying our world.

Update: Geoff's talk at the Purbeck Literary Festival was well received, and set something of a record for attendance in Swanage - over 20 people!

Catch Geoff on an 'Easy Vegan' discussion panel

2pm this Sunday 12th March at Brighton's VegFest.
NEW DATE - September 2017
The date has been moved to avoid planned railway maintenance
