Born with a pencil in his hand, Simon started drawing from an early age. The Beano, Dandy and later, American Marvel comics were his main colleges of education.
He is one of the UK’s foremost caricaturists, providing caricatures drawn from photographs as unique gifts and entertaining at corporate events, private parties, exhibitions, conferences and weddings all over Europe.
His work has been published in magazines and newspapers across the globe (including the Sunday Times, Sunday Telegraph, News of the World, The Week, Nursing Times etc) and a lot of work is commissioned for marketing, advertising and training purposes.
“JUST A NOTE to thank you so much for last night. You were excellent and very well received by everyone. Many have commented this morning. The Commanding Officer’s caricature was particularly good. I shall certainly recommend you to the wider Army. Many thanks from The Welsh Guards.”
– Maj Guy Stone
“After seeing some of his brilliant cartoon work I asked him to do a series of 20 cartoons for my forthcoming book. Simon’s service is quick and the cartoons are excellent. It has been an interaction between us and he has skilfully conveyed the message I have been seeking from each one whilst making them witty too. Everyone who has seen them loves them.”

SIMON IS a very talented person, I had the pleasure of meeting him just the other day and was most amused by the caricature he did of me in just 5 minutes! It was so accurate that everyone I showed it to was amazed at how well he had captured the essence of me in such a short time. I would highly recommend you take the time to meet with Simon, he can offer a sense of humour to any professional presentation or just create a unique gift with his artistic talents.
