Cécile Simonis was born in Belgium in 1984, and now lives and works in Edinburgh as a printmaker and illustrator. We are delighted to have Cecile as a tutor here at The Edinburgh Drawing School, and now we have her work in our associated gallery.
She studied illustration in ESA Saint-Luc Liege and Ecole Superieure des Arts de la ville de Liege in Belgium, and is now based full time in Edinburgh.
Cécile creates prints, drawings, artists books and 3D objects that mix observations with imaginary elements and travel through time and space. Her work has been shown in Scotland, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands and has won several prizes .
Her strong interest in graphic novels, cinema and photography,
mediums that link image-making and storytelling is noticeable in her work.
She is interested in creating open visual narratives in her prints, drawings, books and, in her 3D work, exploring multiple points of view.
