Steve Latimer is an artist living in Lakeland Florida. I am orginally from California and grew up mostly in the West when my father was in the Air Force. Art has always been a part of my life. I started drawing in elementary school and continued in high school. I majored in art in college and received a AA Degree in Art from Polk Jr College in 1967. I then continued my education at the University of South Florida and majored in fine arts.
When we moved to Raleigh North Carolina about three years ago I seriously started painting again. I use a mixture of mediums but mainly Liquid Acrylics and Watercolors on Canvas, Wood Panels and Paper. Currently I am working in Acrylics and Wood Assemblages.
Art has been a interesting path for me over the years. My art now has become a abstract interpretation. This allows me to see my paintings differently. Interpreting art from a realistic view to abstract takes more steps but gives me a deeper attachment to the painting. Abstract art gives me freedom to say and paint what I feel. It makes the viewer look harder at what I am feeling and saying and painting.
Thanks for reading my bio and I hope you enjoy my art.
