Very short version:
Born in 1947, R. Geoffrey Blackburn began his professional fine arts career in 1970. He has taught art and worked in various art-related fields his entire professional life. While in England, in the early 1970's, he was the principle artist for an international magazine.
Although he has studied art both privately and at the University of Utah, he is essentially self-taught. His first recognition as an artist came at the age of eight when his work won first prize at the annual exhibit at the Old Mission at San Juan Capistrano, CA.
During the last uranium boom of the 1970’s, Blackburn co-owned and operated a mineral exploration company, North American Resources Corp. working out of Moab, UT, which was how he came to focus on red rock landscapes.
Blackburn's art has won numerous national and international awards, has been widely exhibited, has hung in the White House, appeared on national television and appears on his own 24-minute episode broadcasting on over 300 television stations world-wide and on all internet channels. In 1987, he invented a new, user-interactive art form for which he received a US Patent in 1990. His work is frequently commissioned by collectors.
