Hey, I’m Simone.
I’m a multidisciplinary artist living in Boston, MA, striving to make art that is unpretentious, visceral, loud and raw.
I’ve been making art since I could pick up a dang pencil. Plants and the natural world play heavily into my work. Probably because I dropped out of art school to “branch-out” and study Botany. I even studied dung beetles and that was cool as shit! (Yes, I just used two puns, and no, I’m not sorry).
Although gouache is my preferred painting method, I dabble with acrylics, oils, mixed media, and printmaking. I am also pursuing some non-drawing methods of expressing myself, including video and recorded spoken word meditation tapes.
Art is in my bones. Slimbones to be exact. Check me out @slimbones_nemes.
