Simon was painting for years before he became an actor, and it is a medium that continues to excite and inspire him, one that he constantly returns to.
“When I started painting, I was primarily painting in oils and then I discovered acrylics. After a period of painting acrylics I have come full circle and returned to oils, because of the depth and warmth they bring to a painting.
“With oils there is also a life underneath the surface, and I can scrape back to reveal this, adding further depth to the painting.
“I enjoy painting so many different things: some of my paintings are detailed and representative, some are abstractive. Sometimes I take photos, and use them as a base for my paintings, other times my paintings just come out of my head.
“When I can’t sleep I just get up in the middle of the night and paint. Whenever I’m painting I’m totally consumed with my work, totally in the moment”
All his life Simon has followed his passion for painting and his diverse collection of work represents his continual fascination with the possibilities and challenges that painting presents.

“SiPaddings are my ‘little visual jewels’, abstracted from real life, from my own photographs and from my imagination. “When I discovered the iPad I thought it would help me to solve problems in my painting compositions and colour choices. “But it soon took me over. “I started to use the apps as art materials in themselves and I started to break all the rules. “I mixed them up, I combined them and ended up creating my siPaddings.” Be one of the first to own one of these stunning pieces, unique to Simon.
