introducing... si smith

For as long as he can remember Si Smith has been an avid draw-er of stuff. Maybe it's in his genes - his father paints and exhibits, his grandfather was also an artist and his brother is a graphic designer and cartoonist.

He was born in Leicester in 1966, and he's currently resident in north Leeds with his wife Sue and their sons Eddie and Jonah.
So far, during the course of his largely uneventful life Si has met Rolf Harris, been in a documentary, witnessed Gary Lineker's league debut, visited Scarborough, spent five years teaching in a primary school, agitated an alternative worship event into being, author-illustrated three books, been deservedly rebuked by a bishop, run a football team, bought a composter, created a church comedy event and co-edited a comic. He's currently curating this very exhibition and thinking about things for the Greenbelt Festival, when he probably should be working.

Si has a blog that you can see here.
(He has a website too, but it's permanently in need of updating...)
