Genevieve Simms

Working out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada the illustrator's style is painterly, with obvious, but beautiful strokes of paint in each inch of her pieces. Her works are reminiscent of the era of the late 19th century and the dawn of the 20th, and evoke, at least for me, the spirit of Edward Hopper and other pupils that came after the ash can school of New York. The subject matter she deals with are mostly about people in daily life, yet some of her pieces are metaphorical and symbolic, making her work fun to look at, and not always about paint on the canvas. Her clients include The Edmonton Arts Council, Explore, Eye Weekly, Farm Forum, The L Magazine, LA Times, Mcsweeny's Quarterly Magazine, and Swerve Magazine.
