Simon's Art

We'd like to introduce you to a friend of the PNE...

Simon Greaves is a local 27-year-old artist, who paints and sells cards and prints of his work.

Artist statement:

“Hi, I’m Simon. I started painting in school but got really good when I joined the Supportive Arts Program at the Elora Centre for the Arts. Anyone can join, especially people with disabilities, like me.

I grew up in British Columbia and I love going to the PNE. I was very sad that it was cancelled this year. I did this painting of the ferris wheel with all the things I love about the PNE written on it. I called this “Pining for the PNE” in order to take my mind off things. I am SO glad that I can go to Playland this summer.”

Simon Greaves: Pining for the PNE

“I visited Playland in August and had a fabulous day. I finished my painting of the Pirate Ship, my second favourite ride. I went on the Pirate Ship 10 times. What a great day. I am now working on painting the Sea-Sky Swinger!”

“The Sea to Sky Swinger is another of my favourite rides at the PNE. Here is my version of it. I rode on this quite a few times in August and cannot wait for PNE Playland 2021.”
