Simmons is a painter, printmaker, and silkscreen artist born and raised in New York City. As such, her work largely draws major inspiration from her experience in a culture of excess. Holding a BA in Studio Art and Art History from Columbia University, Simmons has since been the recipient of several prestigious awards including the Orra White Hitchcock and National Endowment of the Arts Award. Simmons’ work is a manifestation of the dichotomy between childhood innocence and capitalist culture – a bold, graphic, and colorful appeal to a hedonist city through her unique and provocative lens.
