Welcome to the website of award winning aviation artist Simon Mumford. Combining a technical appreciation of the subject with the drama and beauty of sky and landscapes Simon’s artworks skilfully capture the majesty of aviation in all its myriad forms.
Well known for his extremely accurate pencil illustrations, particularly of the EE Lightning, Simon has now built a reputation as a specialist in British Cold War aircraft.

What others have said…
“Simon is one of the best aviation artist to come along in many years.”
“This is a superb picture and I write as one who has over 2200 hours on the Buccaneer.”
“As in his other artwork he has captured the detail and lines of the aircraft, while at the same time capturing a moment of the surreal blend of beauty and power that is so typified by this magnificent aeroplane. No other artist captures the Lightning quite so well.”
“Simon has produced a wonderfully evocative picture and I am very proud that it now hangs on my wall.”
