About

I’m the artist, Simon Evans, a UK based freelance designer and illustrator. My design career has taken me on an exciting journey over the years starting in London storyboarding and visualising large scale events, to stage sets, interiors, model making and murals.

I have always drawn by hand, and in 2012 we had a ‘light bulb’ moment and Funky Beach Art was created. My energy and enthusiasm was channelled into producing something original and colourful – with the emphasis on ‘FUN’. Working from home in my Studio, the design process involves a black & white sketch, turning this into a full colour illustration and placing it onto a hand-painted canvas background.  Art to compliment any blank wall, but not recommended to be placed over direct heat or in prolonged sunlight.

You can find us at events near you!

Check out our Events page as we take Funky Beach Art on the road to show-case our work.

What do you do with your old magazines?
Re-cycling is important to us!

We make our own bags. Giving a gift
with the right message...

My partner Jane works with me at all our events, and is the person behind getting us to some of the best shows around to showcase our work, as well as making a range of coastal cushions you’ll find on the site.

Meeting people is a really nice part of our job, and at every event, interaction with the customer is key, as I personalise canvasses on-the-spot. With my experience and a pen, I can usually understand what customers want and sketch out ideas to turn their canvas into a unique gift.
