Simon Haiduk, Kimberley Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement Growing up in British Columbia, Canada, Simon developed strong foundations in visual arts, music and a love for nature. In 2004 he gravitated towards painting as a full-time endeavour. As a mostly self taught artist, Simon has explored various mediums, subjects, and themes. After spending some years traveling abroad and touring in art shows, Simon decided to further his skills in Digital Design, graduating from Vancouver Film School in 2007. He currently works out of his studio as a freelance artist, while continuing to explore an ever-expanding palette of other creative endeavors.
Empowering my creative force is the love, respect, and understanding that all life comes from the same source and can be shared in many ways. In my dedication to the creative process, I strive to find ways of producing work and living life that maintain this harmony between the Earth and its shared inhabitants. Each creation reflects an aspect of this journey, thinning the veil between physical and metaphysical realities in an unfolding awareness of that which connects us all.
