Listen to Simone’s interview on radio 4 ‘midweek’

Portraits

Simone’s portrait commissions aim to find the essence of the person beneath the physical exterior, so achieving a real likeness and something deeper at the same time. Colour and light play an important role in defining the sitter. Pets are less complicated, their spirit is right there in front of you!

"You are very gifted at capturing the whole person, both their physical qualities and the essence of who they truly are."

- Mary Alexander

"I was delighted to be painted by Simone Sandelson. She has skill and a sensitivity that comes through in her work. She is a dedicated artist. I enjoyed sitting for her and was very impressed by the result."

- Sir Malcolm Rifkind

"Simone Sandelson attends to the external and internal aspects of the people she paints. Her capacity to stand back and record objective details without compromising a sense of intimacy as well as her ability to put a sitter in front herself in the process, are part of what makes her portraits so valuable and special."

- Shawn Tower
