Steve Simon Artist Biography

Steve Simon was raised outside Chicago by immigrant parents from Luxembourg. As a youth, Simon enjoyed drawing but eventually pursued more technical interests. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, Simon practiced engineering in Germany. He later returned to Chicago to work as a management consultant.

While in Chicago, Simon participated in oil painting workshops in the evenings but still did not consider an art career. Still searching for his calling, Simon chose to pursue an MBA in international business during which he studied in Paris, New York, Tokyo, and nine other cities throughout Eastern Europe and Asia. At this point, his travels had brought him to over thirty countries as the cultural exposure continued to fuel the latent artist.

After receiving his MBA, Simon accepted a consulting assignment in Paris. Here he could explore the art world which so intrigued him. In his free time, he visited art museums and painted in his studio apartment in the famous artist’s quarter of Montmartre. Upon completing the Paris assignment, it became clear to him that the artist within must be acknowledged.

It was then Simon decided to pursue his real passion. In 1994, at age twenty-nine, he moved to California to start his art career. He has since produced over 300 oil paintings, published seven art books of his work, created a broad selection of limited edition, canvas giclée prints, and owned and operated his gallery on scenic Balboa Island, California for eight years. His collectors include a wide variety of private, corporate, and government clientele, domestically and internationally.

In 2007, Simon moved to the beautiful Red Rock Country of Arizona where he began painting local inspirations and working on a large collection of paintings depicting history’s great peacemakers. In 2022, he moved to New Hampshire where he currently resides with his wife and daughter.
