Images for the 21st Century

Greeting, welcome to GarySimStudio! I am located in Vancouver, British Columbia, where I was born. Although I have lived and worked all over the Province, as well as in Seattle, I have always returned to Vancouver. My studio is located in the West End of Vancouver, midway between Downtown and Stanley Park, and between Vancouver Harbour and English Bay, all of which are within easy walking distance. Stanley Park offers chances to see a wide range of wildlife. Wild animals include beaver, river otter, raccoon, skunk, and coyote. Birds range from tiny twitterers to major raptors like owls, bald eagles and osprey, Orcas and grey whales have been seen recently in the harbour. The mountains, canyons, ocean and islands add endless opportunities for interesting subject matter.

My artwork is a mix of realistic images and imaginary images. With my linocut relief prints I try to show selected images in a minimalistic way, although I have a tendency to do some very detailed cutting, such as with Dream Snake. My drawings range in size from small sketches up to 24" x 36" large format images. I use photographs taken on many trips for use in creating artwork.

All of my artwork is created using professional tools, equipment, and supplies. These include linoleum from the Netherlands, ink from Wales, cutting and printing tools from the USA and Japan, pens from Germany and Japan, and high quality paper from Japan and France. All limited edition prints are created with my J. Smart copy press, a 110 year old piece of history that works as well now as it did when it was made.
