Simon Cook trained at the Wimbledon School of Art and has now been painting for 30 years. In his early years as an artist, he supplemented his income with other work, but now paints full-time. He works in a studio in Axminster, Devon, alongside other artists and craftspeople. Simon Cook has built up a broad client base over the years by accepting commissions, galllery work and experimental painting. His work is constantly developing and has recently become richer in colour and less superflous in detail.
