Simon Hemsley

Simon  Hemsley
Simon is an emerging artist currently based in the south west of Australia. His passion for drawing and painting began in his twenties, and has continued to be a source of enjoyment throughout his life. In recent years he has spent time in the Kimberley region of Western Australia where he was able to expand his technique, painting alongside Aboriginal artists and being exposed to their use of local ochres and other natural pigments.Using watercolour and natural ochres, his paintings have a spontaneity and fluidity with an emphasis on keeping the subject matter simple. Recent travel back to art school in London, has seen him return to his figurative work, trying to capture a mood and evoke an emotive response which is reflected in his artworks. The diversity in his style allows him to create evolving, contemporary artworks which appeal to a varied audience. He derives satisfaction in knowing his work has been collected and enjoyed by people from many countries.
