Afro - Caribbean artist Simone Patricia is a contemporary abstract/realist from the Waterloo Region. Her expressive colourful paintings pay homage to her African-Caribbean heritage/culture and various women, men and children from her life as well as within the BIPOC Community.
Starting off solely drawing, Simone has been an artist for as long as she can remember. Attending the Visual Arts program at Lakehead University, she was there introduced to various art mediums and fell deeply in love with painting and has been painting ever since.
Imperfection is her drive and motivation. Being able to create while not being concerned whether her work is perfect, is her definition of perfect bliss. Simone’s unique style is a harmonious blend of vibrancy and geometry with a mix of abstraction and realism. Fluidity and freedom go hand in hand for Simone, and that recipe then results in endless true creation for the artist.
