About the Artist
Simon is based in Shropshire, working from his studio overlooking Wenlock Edge. Much of his work is inspired by life in a rural community.
His studio is set in dramatic landscape in the heart of Corvedale in Shropshire. The Corvedale is the most southerly dale in England. It lies between Wenlock Edge (which inspired the song cycle by Ralph Vaughan Williams ‘On Wenlock Edge’) on one side, and Brown Clee Hill (the highest point in Shropshire) on the other. The studio can be visited by appointment with the artist through the contact page of this website.
His work focuses on relationships and interactions, seeking to capture the emotional and physical energy between individuals and within groups.
He creates work in foundry bronze, bronze resin, iron resin and stoneware clay.
He is an elected Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) and an elected Associate of the Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA).
Simon has had work exhibited at the Summer Exhibition of the Royal Academy, has been a finalist in the National Open Art Competition, finalist in the Wildlife Artist of the Year competition, and has been a regular exhibitor with the RBSA in Birmingham and the RSMA in London.
In March 2022 his ‘Cattle Auction’ was exhibited at the Annual Exhibition of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) at the Mall Gallery in London.
In 2019 Simon won the ‘Sea Pictures Award’ at the annual exhibition of the RSMA.
