Siobhan Coffey

 

statement

Siobhan was reared between the rivers Lee and Sullane outside Macroom Co Cork. This afforded wonderful opportunities to observe the wildlife and landscape, particularly the ever changing waterways.

Holidays in the wild places in kerry, days on the bog and boating trips on the rivers all inspired an interest in drawing and painting, other people's and then hers.

Living in Balbriggan the main inspiration for Siobhan's work is the sea and the sky and the place where they meet.
