Simeon Stafford

 

Simeon was born in Duckinfield, a small northern town bordering the Pennines. As a young artist, his landscapes were inspired by the gritty landscapes of LS Lowry. Achieving many awards for his work from the age of 14 Simeon went on to study at Hyde College and in 1974 became a professional artist. When Simeon later moved to Cornwall in 1996, the influence of his northern roots fused with the magnetism of West Penwith to create an expressionism within his work which is both powerful and alluring.
