Simon’s paintings are a direct and emotional response to the subject. Style and technique are dictated by his initial experience of painting on the spot, and then continuing in the studio.

His career so far has led to him producing illustrations, caricatures, commissioned paintings, murals and educational workshops for schools. Currently though, he is following two distinct strands. Firstly, painting the places he loves in order to capture them before they inevitably change. Secondly, a more illustrative and lyrical depiction of sea themes in his work as themariner7.

Simon enjoys experimenting with the process of painting; and relishes the unexpected, as well as the intended results, that this creates.
