Connecting The World - Artist Profile - Steve Neil's
Art in all its forms can be frustrating, rewarding, personal and not least beneficial to health.
I create artwork that has inspired in me a reaction, often as not through the force’s of Nature or man-made events. I’ve been painting since early childhood and can recall my father, who was what used to be called a travelling salesman, bring home a second-hand easel for me which I still use to this day!
My preference is dramatic representation of natural events and the forces of nature often translated through the sea, sky and the unknown outer-space! My technique is best described as abstraction, where reality is dramatised for aesthetic effect and impact.
I organise and run art workshops, with the primary aim of encouraging people to tap into their creative side, these have been great success for those attending and myself as the catalyst for their new found enjoyment.
