Aanii, my name is Jonathon.G.Simon. I am a self taught artist from Wikwemikoong Unceeded Reserve on beautiful Manitoulin Island, Ontario. A father to two beautiful girls. I have been painting since 1996. I paint from the heart and learn also from that which I paint. My inspiration in painting comes from the world around me and the beauty of it. Jonathon found the Friends United Initiative and Rolf Bouman through other artist members. After travelling to Nova Scotia in 2017, he decided to join the Friend United initiative and many of his paintings can be viewed at the Friends United International Convention Centre.
