Simone Lyon



Simone has worked as a professional artist for more than 30 years. She was awarded a 1st class honours degree in fine art, specialising in ceramics, from London University in 1979. Since then has had studios in London, Edinburgh and Liguria in Italy. She has exhibited her work widely in Europe and also in America. For the last four years she has been living and working in South Australia where she exhibits in several galleries.

Simone`s work has evolved over the years, partly in response to the different locations in which she has lived. Her sculpture is mainly figurative although not always realistic; capturing the way people move and interact.
