Simeonie comes from a family with strong carving tradition. His father was the famous Shorty Killiktee, who taught him to carve at the age of seven. Simeonie is an extremely hardworking and prolific artist. The maxim “practice makes perfect” holds true in his case because of his diligence. His work keeps getting better, as he carves almost every day of the week except Sunday.

While Simeonie has certain favourite subjects he enjoys carving, such as fish, he carves a wide range of subject matter which includes hunters, people fishing, muskox, talilyok (mermaids) or sedans (Inuit creation myth woman), inuksuit (traditional stone markers) and bears.
