Life is a Dance of Sheer Spontaneity
I'm Steve Slimm. I'm know mostly for my painting, and have made my living from producing artwork since around 1980 (albeit with occasional support from other work). All through this time I have been equally passionate about making music, and for the past twenty years also about writing. Video also began to complement my creative output in recent years.
A New Renaissance Man
I think that's probably the best description I can come up with . . . :/
- Love Nature
- Hard Working
- Nurture People
- Emotionally and Intellectually Intelligent
- Good Self Esteem (except on melt-down!)
- Happy with Myself and the World
All the above attributes come and go at will - over which I generally exercise no control! Some are things I know about myself, while others are more what people tell me. Don't take anything as gospel though!

MY HISTORY AS AN ARTIST
1979 Begins my Urge toward Creativity
And sell my first original painting!
Ok - it was to friends of my mother-in-law at the time - but an artist has to begin somewhere!
2006 Release my First Album of music
Pause for Breath (singer/songwriter stuff)
OK - had a hundred copies done and was never one to tour, as too busy painting by then - so it kinda went into ITunes cyber-space!
2009 Recognized by UK Education Authorities
Featured in Art A-level syllabus for quality of Light
I suppose it was the greatest compliment I could have asked for, arriving at my doorstep (aka computer screen) - kids asking loads of questions because they were 'doing' me for A-level!
2012 Co-operation becomes essential
Can't do all this on my own!
So begins the wonder of collaboration, and the discovery that other people not only really dig what I do, but also actually want to support me!
