“Hugh Simpson was born in England and has resided in Wolfville with his wife Betty for forty years where, together, they raised 3 children. Hugh is a former Acadia and Dalhousie alumnus.
Influenced by artistic parents, Hugh is developing his innate watercolour and acrylic abilities after practicing law for twenty-eight years and serving on the municipal council of Wolfville for 5 consecutive terms.
He started his artistic training with Canning artist Matthew Cupido and Francis Moyer in Kentville while he continues to work on an interim basis, he enjoys learning and sharing insights and skills with the artists of the Evangeline Artists Cooperative and the Artists Circle. The painting workshops put on by the Artists Circle have been truly inspiring in upping his game in painting. He started with Acrylic and has recently moved into Watercolour. Primarily he has focused on Landscapes.”
