Geoff Houghton has always had a fascination for the visual arts and as a child he would frequently draw unusual characters to amuse his family. A self-taught artist, Geoff started painting watercolors in the 1990′s, but lost interest in traditional subject matters. It wasn’t until about 2006 that he discovered the enjoyment of fine illustrative style painting that enabled him to express his creativity in a colorful bold way that has been referred to as a sub-genre of Steampunk with elements of Pop Surrealism. Geoff’s art focuses primarily on colorful and whimsical illustrative characters that portray a different time, fashion and technology who are twisted into his colorful SteamFolk world also referred to as “Wistful World”.
