My friend and artist Geary Cranmer was born in Comox
BC Canada. He grew up in his first few years in Alert Bay BC.
Then something happened that put him in custody of the residential
school in Port Alberni BC.
It was a cold and loveless place.
The thing that amazes me about Geary is how he paints, and carves with such talent, and his art is so beautiful.
While he has a very famous and talented father, he was never taught by him. Geary trained himself, with the help of other carvers and painters but mostly his talent is a natural gift.
Geary has an ever ready smile, a friendliness and such a great attitude towards life that it is inspiring to have him as a friend.
