Simonn Schumacher was born in Sydney, Australia and is of Dutch heritage,   most of her early years were spent in Holland where she grew up.

As a teenager her family returned to live in Australia but due to her parents love of travel she spent most of her life travelling overseas on one venture or another.

Simonn finally settled in Byron Bay where she discovered her natural ability for painting and sketching.

She studied under the tuition of Michael John Taylor in Lismore and feels that the greatest lesson learned at Art School was to paint what you feel and not to think too much as this can block the natural flow of creativity. This is evidenced in her highly distinctive and individual style.

Since completing her studies, Simonn's painting career has progressed and developed with successful showings of her work at exhibitions in and around Australia, Jakarta and South Korea.
