Simon Goss trained as a technical illustrator before changing tack and graduating with a degree in Graphic Design. He now runs a successful Graphic Design business in the city of Swansea, Wales, UK but still makes time to draw and paint regularly. His preferred medium is watercolour although it is usually underpinned with strong linework which forms the framework for his painting. He recently completed his Masters in Visual Communication

The study of human anatomy is a traditional creative discipline that encompasses line, form, perspective, composition and colour but, most of all, reminds me that I trained as an artist first.
