About Simon

Life as an artist is hard but someone has to do it

Simon’s philosophy is simple – life and painting does not need to be serious all the time.

His sardonic vision has given rise to his inimitable “commmedia dell arte” series, an ongoing pictorial saga of the ‘fool’ and his eternal quest for the solace of the grape.

In contrast to this humorous body of work, Simon’s landscapes are reminiscent of the old masters – luminous, detailed, often Turneresque in style, ranging in size from miniature to monumental and rather serious.

Simon has received and executed many commissions through the years. These have included typical ’Fool’ type paintings with the client as the jester and personalized with the clients idiosyncrasies. Other commissions have been farmhouse landscapes with special meaning for the owners.
