Influenced by the surrounding Wiltshire landscape, Simon works in both oils and watercolours in a variety of styles from loose abstract to photo-realism working in rich colours with sensitive mark making.

Each piece, though initially planned, takes on an organic flow of its own which can direct the work in a totally different direction dependent upon the results.

His recent body of works in oil on canvas use a rich impasto colour application and by the sole use of a pallet knife. This collection ventures into suggestions of landscape with additional elements of nature - ‘geometric abstraction’.

With an illustrative approach to his works, linocut printing seemed a natural medium for him to re-embrace and explore further, as can be seen here.

Simon regularly shows and exhibits.
