Steve Strode graduated in 1999 with a first class honours Bachelor of Education degree at Liverpool Hope University. Specialising in Art and Education he went on to work both from the studio, and within the community. Steve works for more than one Local Authority delivering art workshops and is also employed at H.M.P Liverpool, teaching art to inmates. He is currently studying for his Masters Degree on an Artist/Teacher programme At Liverpool John Moores University, in conjunction with Tate Liverpool and Walker Galleries.

This latest body of work has been an ongoing project that deals with the landscape of the West Penwith coast of Cornwall . Working along the South West peninsula Steve attempts to create a sense of place that is experienced when exploring the landscape, rather than a scenic rendition of a specific site. The subject has led to an expansive body of work that has been successfully shown throughout the country including, London , at this year’s art fair, and the Ainscough Galleries and in Manchester , for Comme Ca Pr.
