Growing up in British Columbia, Canada, Simon developed strong foundations in visual arts, music and an affinity with nature. n 1999 he attended a Fine Arts program at UCC in Kamloops and soon discovered that he would rather travel, and learn more on his own. This led Simon to various parts of Central and South America. In 2004 he gravitated towards painting as a full-time endeavor. As a mostly self-taught artist, Simon has explored various mediums, and subjects, with a strong influence in spiritual themes. After some time touring in art shows and festivals with a group of similarly themed artists, Simon decided to further his skills in Digital Design, graduating from Vancouver Film School in 2007. He currently works out of his studio as a freelance artist, while continuing to explore an ever-expanding palette of creative endeavors. Simon's art continues to be shown in various public and private galleries throughout the world.
Empowering my creative force is the love, respect, and understanding that all life comes from the same source, and can be shared in many ways. In my dedication to the creative process, I strive to find ways of producing work and living life that maintain harmony between the Earth and its shared inhabitants. Each creation reflects an aspect of this journey, thinning the veil between physical and non-physical realities in an unfolding awareness of that which connects us all.
