Drew Simms


Drew Simms graduated from Central St Martins College of Art and Design with a 1st class degree in Textiles Design. Her speciality was print making. Hand painting her screens gave her work a loose painterly and expressive immediacy.
After collage Drew never left London. Working on feature films in costume departments for over ten years, Drew has now returned to her first love, painting and has set up her art studio near her home with views of the big city.
Drew’s work usually starts with a series of her own photographs which capture a beauty and simplicity in the human world. She then distils the compositions down to a raw, abstract, engaging interpretation through mixed media, collage and paint. The simplicity of her aesthetic belies a rigorous and frenetic work ethic which prevents her from 'over thinking' and stifling her mark making.
