Simon Morse

Simon Morse loves the natural world and the painting and drawing process gives him so much joy.

He works in pastel, oil and charcoal. His pastel paintings are almost exclusively skyscapes as this medium is perfect for capturing the fluid nature of the subject. His oil paintings and charcoal drawings deal with woodlands and trees in their many different forms and textures.

Most of the subjects for his work are very local to him, which gives me the chance to see them many times before starting work on a composition.

Simon has been in the creative arts for many years as a graphic designer, illustrator and artist. Trained at Shrewsbury and Colchester before working in London.

He has exhibited in Colchester and across Essex, Suffolk and Hertfordshire.
