Simon's love of the great outdoors is reflected in his paintings; created in acrylic with heavy use of texture and under-painting, they feature engaging animal characters and humour. Many of them are based on the West Berkshire countryside near where Simon lives and often feature the landscape at night. Simon likes to illustrate the wildlife he observes whilst walking and almost always features the eponymous fox in his paintings.
Simon's paintings are influenced by the woods, heavy, progressive and psychedelic rock, the changing seasons and anything else he finds interesting and visually stimulating.
'As cunning as a fox' are painted in a variety of sizes and are presented in solid ash frames.
