Simeon Stafford (b 1956)

Biography of artist Simeon Stafford (b 1956)

Simeon Stafford was born in Duckingfield on the Pennines in 1956. He won the Robert Owen School award for art and the Manchester News Portrait Award; the consequence of which was an introduction to LS Lowry, who became a family friend and encouraged the young Stafford to study art.

Stafford's early work depicted gritty northern landscapes and character studies. In 1996, Stafford moved to Cornwall where the strong colours and light had a big impact on his work. There are many characters in Stafford's paintings to look out for. Subjects include docks and workers, seaside towns and streets crammed with children playing.
