Richard Geraint Evans, a professional rural London based artist, draws trees and interestingly adds the trees exact GPS coordinates, with the aim to invite people to visit the actual tree and thereby build an emotional connection with the tree.

Born in Cardiff, but raised in rural Derbyshire, Geraint Evans became a professional artist in 2010 after a career in the advertising and design industries as an art director, illustrator and graphic designer. Previously known for portraiture, as his portrait of singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé was chosen for exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London, as part of the National Portrait Awards.

Though, his new venture of drawing GPS Trees is his prime focus, where he spends much of his time searching throughout the UK for beautiful trees to admire, draw and share.

In 2018 , he was invitated to exhibit his GPS Trees work with the Royal Society of British Artists and he has worked with the Woodland Trust in the selection process to create the shortlist for England’s annual ‘Tree of the Year’ competition.
