Simon Turner

Simon joins us for the first time in 2019.

I have been making art based on the Suffolk coast and countryside for around 5 years, and seek inspiration from the fields, marshes and heathland along this very special piece of the British coastline.

Harry Becker’s work often focuses on rural life , animals and people, but I have drawn inspiration from the background Suffolk scenery which he captured so beautifully. I can’t draw people or horses for toffee, so my focus has to lie with what I ghope I am quite good at painting – trees, ploughed fields, marshes and those big Suffolk skies.
