Simon Wright was born in West Yorkshire in 1974. From as early as he can remember, he has always been drawing and painting, and it’s been his sole passion all his life. After gaining a degree as an illustrator he began to realize he enjoyed more fine art painting as it didn’t have the restraints of illustrative work. Through this he gained success by painting animals, particularly dogs, he also started to do more portraiture work.
In his work he tries to bring the elements of illustration and fine art together to hopefully create a style, which is totally unique and appeals to a varied audience. He enjoys working from realistic to abstract and everything in between. He works predominantly in oils and acrylic.
