His surreal and quirky imagery is depicted in oil and pastel with works often depicting a world of innocence inhabited by children and animals however containing an ominous edge. Other subject matter includes flowers, still life, nude studies and landscapes with highly glazed surfaces offering a magical sense of place. Geoffrey Proud alternates between expressionist impasto brushwork whilst experimenting with vibrant colour and texture.

He won the Archibald Prize in 1991 with a portrait of Dorothy Hewett.
