Simeon was born in 1956 one of three children and raised in the Manchester area, his artistic abilities manifested early and by the age of 14 he was exhibiting prolifically across the North of England as well as the Royal Academy’s summer exhibition.
After a successful business career ‘up North’ Simeon moved to Cornwall in the early 90’s to pursue his passion for composing music and painting. His paintings have become yet more sought after – and are now in private collections worldwide – (Her Majesty has one of his paintings of the Mall, Richard Curtis and Tony Blair have his work )
This new ‘just off the easel’ collection are his first ever paintings of East Devon following his first visit to the area earlier this summer (giving visitors to Beer a unique opportunity to purchase) Simeon was so captivated by the scenic landscape and the charming coastal towns that this series of paintings began.
Stand in front of one of Simeon’s paintings and you cant help but smile, and for the most part we are transported into a world of undiluted happiness where skipping ropes, donkey rides, beach huts and fishing boats abound.
Simeon also produces larger canvases. We are happy to arrange viewings by appointment to view these. You can see images of several of them here, those marked with an asterisk.
