Simon is a Sydney-based artist producing works across a number of genres, who has been concentrating more deliberately over the past few years on purely abstracted works that investigate emotive responses to relationships between colours and their ability to specific evoke moods or memories of place.
A self-taught artist, Simon’s background is in architecture (B.Arch) and as a graphic designer. Having experimented over a long period with differing art techniques and media, he finds constant interest in the interactions of physical edges of paint and the varying transitions that can be achieved through their blending, sharpening or eroding. A sense of landscape is often suggested in the content of his abstract works.

To date, Simon has had 8 solo gallery exhibitions, and been represented in more than 20 joint and group exhibitions.
