Simon trained extensively in art and design,
achieving his masters degree in Leicester. Having
spent many idyllic childhood summer holidays in
Pembrokeshire, he returned to begin professionally
painting there in 1994 and made the area his home.
His paintings are to be found in all corners
of the world from Finland to New Zealand, his
atmospheric and figurative water-colours distil
the diverse moods, depth of light and rich sky
colours unique to the Pembrokeshire coastline
captured in all seasons.
Simons love of the ocean is reflected in his
subject matter and local working boats are characteristic
of many of his paintings particularly the infamous
Solva fishing boat 'The Vital Spark'!
His work can be seen at The Swinfield Gallery
on Main Street Solva, and various art outlets
in the county.
