Growing up in British Columbia, Canada, Simon developed a strong affinity for nature with artistic foundations in visual art and music.  In 2004 he gravitated towards painting as a full-time endeavor, bringing his musical background into the visual realm.  Simon has explored many visual mediums, including animation, often with a strong influence in spiritual themes connected to nature. Currently, his primary medium is digital painting. He continues to also produce music and has released four full-length albums since 2002. Within art galleries, festivals, conventions, and online platforms, his work is exhibited globally. He currently works out of his studio in Roberts Creek, BC, while continuing to explore an ever-expanding palette of creative endeavors.
