Initially Simon Keeley trained as a stone mason in York before studying stone carving at the London City and Guilds Art School, and then acquiring an MA in architecture at the University of East London. This background has given an architectural dimension to his work, which draws on the heritage of sacred architecture and the architecture of the human figure to create his carved stone pieces. He mainly produces original artworks, which he designs and carves in stone.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
