Former Byron resident Simonn Schumacher has returned to the area and is celebrating her homecoming with an exhibition at Yami Café in Brunswick Heads – a favourite local haunt.

An established artist with successful solo exhibitions in Indonesia and Australia, Simonn’s work is available in galleries in Melbourne and on the Sunshine Coast.

Works on paper are painted with coffee and her work also includes acrylic on canvas painting. Simonn’s work is well known for deep soulful eyes that capture the onlooker with their intense emotion.

Simonn-Schumacher-02-After growing up in The Netherlands, Simonn has travelled extensively and has lived in Spain, Korea, Indonesia and Byron Bay.

She has brought her two boys back to the area she so adored and they are now living in Brunswick Heads.

Simonn is keen to share her love of art with her friends and other local residents and will be exhibiting from Tuesday January 28 for six weeks.
