Steve Slimm (b1953)
Steve Slimm has been living and painting in Cornwall for the last 25 years. A self-taught artist, he studied in a painting group under John Miller for a while who was to be a great influence on the artist and encouraged him to pursue his talent. His main influence is Turner which can be seen through his use of light in his works. He is known for his atmospheric semi-abstract impressions of his surroundings with its ever-shifting moods of light. Since 2009 he has been featured in the UK national Art A-level syllabus – in particular for his use of light. He has exhibited widely throughout Cornwall and the UK and his works are in numerous private collections here and overseas.
