Regardless of the chosen medium or subject matter, Simone’s work invariably involves a combination of textures, layers and subtle colours. Always inspired by textures, she has built up an extensive photographic collection over the years which includes images of old walls, peeling paint, rust, weathered wood and many other worn surfaces of various kinds.
Simone’s photomontage images are created by taking an original photograph and then building up overlays, always using multiple photographed textures from her own collection.
Although these are digital works, all the images used are always her own, to ensure that the artwork is a totally original piece.
Simone is current Chair of the artist run Chalk Gallery, Lewes.
