About the artist:

Geoffrey Mikol is a professional artist that owns River Bend Gallery with his family, in historic Galena, Illinois. As a person born with Down syndrome, Geoffrey has found a special connection with photography as a means of expressing himself. His work is stunning and often technically difficult, catching elusive light that the eye sees but that cameras often miss.

In his mid 20’s, Geoffrey has studied and practiced his photography now for nearly a decade, with spectacular results.

While in college, he started his business exhibiting at Chicagoland art shows. He has garnered numerous awards for his work; has developed a following of collectors and enthusiasts. After graduating from Community College in Chicago, Geoffrey decided that he wanted a full-time career as an artist.
