Born in West Yorkshire in 1974, Simon's sole passion has always been drawing and painting. After gaining a degree as an illustrator he began to realise he enjoyed fine art painting as it didn't have the restraints of illustrative work. Through this he gained success painting animals, particularly dogs, and also started to do more portraiture work.
In his work he tries to bring the elements of illustration and fine art together to hopefully create a style which is totally unique and appeals to a varied audience. He enjoys working from realistic to abstract and everything in between.
