Character Houses and Building series
I have used watercolour to create this mini-series of houses and buildings. Each one has a story to tell. They all have a certain character about them. As I was driving along 1st Avenue and Grandview Highway, these houses caught my eye and I thought, how long until they are torn down and replaced? So I started painting them.
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 learned to apply different techniques to her work and created 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.
She is currently 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, Place des Arts, Fort Langley Art Gallery and the Federation Gallery.
