Simon Winegar

Simon always informally planned on becoming a professional painter. It wasn’t until his late teenage years in Madrid, Spain, however, that he made the conscious decision to dedicate himself fully to his dream. An avid outdoorsman, Winegar has always been drawn to the natural beauty of the earth. Although he prefers to paint on location, he also spends a great deal of time painting from his own photographs or drawings and can occasionally be found working on still lifes. Says the artist, “I don’t really claim a ‘style’. I’d rather have people look at my work and not have a predetermined notion of what it should be.”
