Originally from the Wirral, Steve Moon has been living in Chester for eight years. He has done art for as long as he can remember and has been painting in oils since he was eleven. In the last ten years Steve has worked in acrylics more than oils but he enjoys experimenting with different mediums and styles. Steve says that he is not a ‘fully professional artist’ but is fortunate to have a day job that gives him half of the year off. In the last few years much of his off time Steve spent in his studio.
All the works in the 'Leafy Chester' series are strongly influenced by Gustav Klimp's landscape technique, utilising distant viewpoints (telescoping) and short uniform brush work. The aim is to achieve a decorative 'rug like' patterned surface. Most of the leafy Chester series are composite images utilising several view points.
