Simone Star is an artist and psychotherapist who seeks to communicate diverse human experience, themes of social justice, and traces of the ineffable through the language of visual art. Simone’s work includes painting, sculpture, and beadwork among other media. Simone has no formal art training and has developed her artistic voice through a process of trial and error as well as deep listening. Because her art often depict members of indigenous and marginalized communities, Simone donates a portion of her proceeds to raise funds to directly support these communities.
Simone is a member of the Tribe 13 artist's collective and has displayed her art in numerous galleries and festivals throughout California as well as the Yerba Buena Center for The Arts in San Francisco. She has also published a children’s book titled "The Magic Key," of which she is both the author and illustrator. When Simone is not making visual art she works as a psychotherapist. Simone views her primary work in this world to be a path of service and self-growth, and her art is a symbolic representation of this healing journey.
