BARBARA SIMON


I studied BA (Hons) Visual Arts at Swansea, graduated in 1995 and then studied a PGCE in Art & Design (Secondary Education) in 1997. I returned to Pembrokeshire to lecture in Art and Design and Photography. I also work as a commercial photographer.

 

Whilst teaching, I still work on my own projects. These include working in various media such as, 35 mm film, pinhole photography, digital photography and silk - screen printing combined with mixed medium painting.


For my latest mixed medium work I use canvas board, acrylic paint, text and collage. The work is layered and scraped back to reveal under painting and text, onto this I silkscreen print my own manipulated photographic images.

Each photographic silk screen is used for one painting only, making each artwork unique. I draw my inspiration from my love of Pembrokeshire and my travels throughout the UK and abroad.
