In between my 30 year graphic design career I have always embraced my mad passion for illustration, painting and visual arts. While I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil, I was discouraged by the rigid structure of school art classes. It was only after my own children started drawing that my enthusiasm for art and self expression was rekindled. Picking up a pencil again, my whole world became brighter and more fulfilled. Mid 2019 has seen the closing of the graphic design door and the opening, wide and with sharp focus, the door to more educating others and working on my own art practice. It’s an exciting time and I intend on doing what I love for as long as I am able.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT SIM'S ARTWORK / GRAPHIC DESIGN
I just wanted to email you to convey how much I appreciated your assistance yesterday. It is so wonderful to finally have a professional online framework to populate!! Your thoughtful, calm and knowledgeable appproach, combined with your creative flair was the key to it all and such a pleasure to work alongside. I am so fortunate to have been referred to you by a friend. Philippa
Simone, your style, creativity and knowledge have shone through on our new wonderful logo. We are so incredibly proud of our new brand and can't thank you enough for the quick timeframe and value for our budget. Thank you again for making our business look so professional. Sam & Ness
We recently saw Simone’s beautiful work displayed in Bond & Lane Canteen. We initially purchased 3 x A4 prints, ordering online and received them quickly in the post. We were thrilled with them and decided we also wanted one of Simone's large original paintings. We contacted her and within a week she was able to re-create one of her existing pieces in landscape format and matching our colour scheme. The painting exceeded our expectations and looks just perfect!
