ARTIST DETAILSZiggy J Simonwebsite
Gardener by day, illustrator by night!
I studied 3D at Reigate School of Art in the 90s, but after finishing I started my gardening business and didn't draw a thing until 6 years ago, when I drew a few animals for my daughter B, and my wonderful husband pointed out that I wasn't too shabby and maybe I should give it a go? I've been non stop ever since. (thanks Nick.)
I have also discovered a love of needlefelting, which is incredibly therapeutic.
I love a nice wildlife commission as we are passionate about preserving local wildlife, but also I'm very keen on Fantasy, Burlesque and botanical, and if I can mix the three together I am as happy as a Haslemere Hog in a Haslemere bog!
