"Technique is the medium through which artists communicate, but what we communicate comes from the heart. I want my audience to see into the hearts and emotions of my paintings, I work to create an energy field within each piece which may be felt by the viewer who shares my emotions and visions of beauty. I rely upon this beauty to attract the eye and release the heart." In his work, Mr Simon goes beyond the obvious to create a concept and mood conveyed through strong design and composition.
