WELCOME TO PAINTINGS BY SIMON

I was raised in St.Neots, a small town in rural Cambridgeshire, UK. My home town had a Lots of countryside, long rivers and green parks.

I moved to Portsmouth, UK just before the end of the last century and studied at the University of Portsmouth. I graduating in 2001 just before the birth of my daughter. For a number of years I put art aside and worked in an insurance company as a head programmer. In 2005 we welcomed my son into the family and shortly afterwards fell ill.

I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of diabetes that destroyed the nerves in my lower body and has reduced my eye site considerably (Bottle bottom glasses). I also developed a disability called Charcot Joint in both of my feet, this causes me immense pain all the time.

I feel painting is a good therapeutic way of dealing with my problems and allows me to earn a living as well.

My favourite subjects are nature and abstract, i often combine both of these in my paintings.

Please support me if you can, and feel free to contact me if you want a custom painting or you want to chat about charcot.

Paintings are completed on high quality watercolor paper or canvas. We use premium watercolor paints, acrylic paints and
acrylic inks.

Prints are printed on thick white paper using Epson inks.

Please be aware of what you are ordering. if you have any questions please message me.

Color information

We always try our best to depict the true color of the painting in our photos. Each painting is scanned in using a Epson V700 scanner and although we take every effort we understand there maybe some variation in color and color depth between the photo on screen and the print or painting you receive.
These variations usually occur due to how different monitors display colours differently and the conversion from RGB to CYMK (Screen to printer when printed)

Paper types :- Glossy / Matte / Watercolor / Acrylic

Original paintings
=================

My original paintings are completed on high quality watercolor paper in various sizes. The paintings are pressed to keep their form and can be mounted or framed.

My acrylic paintings are usually completed on acrylic paper which is similar to watercolor paper but a bit thicker it also tends to have less texture. I also use canvas's and canvas boards.

Reproductions
==============

My prints are finished on matte or glossy photo paper, this keep the colors and textures of the original painting but are cheaper to buy than the original. Glossy photo paper has a shine to it while matte does not.

Instant download vs download links

downloads these come in two "flavours"

1. Instant downloads
2. Download links

Instant downloads are usually multiple file that come in variety of sizes and are stored on Etsy. As such these are more expensive and not tailored to individual needs.

Download links are stored on google drive, this means i can list them alongside physical prints which allows the customer to choose the variation in size and shape and also reduce the customers costs buy not purchasing unwanted sizes. But the downside is that i am not always at my computer to send these links and there is no automatic way of doing it through Etsy. I will usually send any links within a few minutes, but some times it maybe a few hours if for example i am asleep.
