Jason Simkins

My name is Jason Simkins and I consider myself to be a Calgarian now that

I have lived here for 6 years.  I grew up in sunny Kelowna and spent a year

living in Mission (British Columbia).  I moved to Calgary for love and to

build a brighter future for myself, please read on to hear more about my



I am a self-taught artist, dabbling in music, painting, cooking, design, and

am thrilled to be apart of this community. My earlier years were tough

and I struggled with health issues, but I soon learned that those health

issues only made me a stronger. I have made some mistakes along the

way, but have grown to apply my strengths and business acumen to my

life and art. I realise that life has ebbs and flows and people can come

and go. Remembering that family is paramount, both my chosen and

blood family.


I love my life, family (chosen too), and my home. My only hope is that my

love translates into my art, and from time to time puts a smile on

someone’s face.

Kind regards
