Growing up in British Columbia, Canada, Simon developed a strong affinity to nature with artistic foundations in visual art and music. In 2004 he gravitated towards painting as a full time endeavour 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. He continues to produce music, and has released four full length albums from 2002 to 2013. From art galleries, to festivals, conventions, and online platforms, his work is exhibited globally. He currently works out of his studio as a freelance artist, while continuing to explore an ever expanding palette of creative endeavours.
