Simpson’s work has been called “Folk Meets Fauve,” the latter a reference to her penchant for vivid hues. Her inspiration is drawn from local farms and gardens, orchards and wineries, seaside boats and chicken coops, all stylized and fused using bold outlines as well as colors.

“As a child, being home schooled from preschool to twelfth grade, art was a part of my daily life,” says Simpson, who is self-taught in painting and began getting serious about her craft at age 20.
