Born in Edmonton, AB, Simone has always been aware of the beauty of her surroundings. Enjoying the visual and creative side of the arts throughout elementary and high school, she continued into college in applied design.
After raising two children and doing various volunteer work, she joined an art club. Through many workshops, Simone has learned to apply different techniques to her work and create visual art using watercolour as a medium.
Simone is now using the medium of acrylics and pastels as well as watercolour to express her ideas.
Recently, she has been working on a series of urban buildings, street scenes and houses.
She continues to show her artwork through various art clubs and juried art shows. She has shown in the Maple Ridge Art Gallery, Port Moody Art Gallery and the Federation Gallery.
Big prairie skies, long roads and stark buildings are my way of seeing the prairies on a smaller scale using watercolour and ink on a 4″ x 4″ format.
