Original author tagged it G7, which I declined since other editors have contributed - but I don't really see much in the way of notability here. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 22:45, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

This appears to be an autobiography of an emerging artist. Stong candidate for deletion, as does not meet WP:BIO. Harry Simmonds is actually a painter and decorator, and appears to be using Wikipedia to promote his hobby of painting. Reference 2 does not exist. The remaining reference is the individual's own website, which confirms that 3 years have passed since his work was last exhibited. Emerging / up-and-coming is not the same as notable, and in this case the individual has clearly failed to emerge - unless there is other referenceable material to prove otherwise? My aunty gladys paints watercolours once in a while - why not give her a wikipedia article? If the subject wishes to write about himself, he should stick to facebook. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Georgenup (talkcontribs) 14:53, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete. I just added two local news stories as sources to the article. That said, they're not enough to convince me of notability and I couldn't find any more. —David Eppstein (talk) 05:03, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
