Simone has developed her own unique style and technique, creating images that sit between photography and fine art. Her compositions have a `painterly’ feel, slightly reminiscent of some of the `old masters’, but with a modern contemporary twist.
She says “I like to think outside the box and have always had an aversion to conventional labels”.
Her photomontage images are created by taking an original photograph and then building up overlays, always involving photographed textures and subtle colours. The finished artwork is therefore an amalgamation of many different layers, each with different effects applied, superimposed over the original image, with varying levels of translucency. Although these are digital works, all the images and textures used are from her own photographic collection, to ensure that the artwork is a totally `one-off’ original piece.
