Goff was born in 1949 in a small South Wales town called Brynmawr where his artistic interests were first noticed and encouraged by his very supportive art teacher at the local grammar school. On leaving school, Goff trained at the West of England College of Art, Bristol, Cardiff College of Art and Cardiff University. He then taught at St Illtyd's College, Cardiff until moving into the management of education for a number of local authorities in South East Wales. This became his full time occupation for many years. However, it is in the past few years that he has acquired a confidence in his own understanding of art to paint for his own purpose, in his own way, regardless of trends or prejudices. Fortunately, this has proven to be very successful and enabled him to explore a completely new career as a full time professional artist.
Born and bred in Abergavenny Haydn Gear attended King Henry VIII Grammar School prior to studying at Bristol and Newport Colleges of Art. Following that he won a place to study at the prestigious Goldsmiths College in London and specialised in painting. Soon afterwards, having qualified as a graduate Art teacher he taught in various schools and colleges in London before moving to the north of England. He took up a post as Head of Fine Art in a Yorkshire college and around the same time was seconded to Leeds University where he researched the area of Art Therapy, dealing with mentally ill patients and prisoners. Having taken early retirement he then returned to his native South Wales in 2002.
His work of late focuses on the landscape of Wales and Still Life but also embraces an abiding interest in astronomical and scientific material.
