Simon's work is testament to an enduring fascination across the scale of an extended view of Nature; ranging from the sub-atomic, through our familiar human scale, right on to the convolutions of a possible multiverse.
His passion is to celebrate natural wonder as a "Poetry of Space". With carving central to his creative identity he has also ventured into many different techniques and materials to best explore the breadth of his interests. Simon has completed numerous public and private commissions internationally as well as in the UK, where he lives and works in Cornwall.
