Artist Steve Slimm - C.V.



About the Artist:

Steve is from The Black Country in West Midlands, UK. He later lived in the Cotswolds and attended Cheltenham Grammar School. Moving to Cornwall, southwest UK in 1970, he joined an art group under John Miller for a brief period. Painting began to feature as a main interest in his life, with periodic encouragement from John through the next two decades. 
Turner was an obvious influence during the early years. Many atmospheric watercolours found their way into collections worldwide. The Land remains the prime inspiration for his work, although the human form tends to creep in, albeit subliminally. His work is now far from realism, with an emotional intensity that is self-evident. His shows are always colourful, with most pieces hallmarked by a deep sense of mystery. 
He now works mainly in emulsions and oil.
