Holidays in West Kerry from her home in rural West Cork instilled a love of the wild sea in Siobhan Coffey.
Settling on the coast in Balbriggan was, for her, the perfect creative space. The rhythms between land and sea inform her Art, be it in her copper bird sculptures, oil and pastel work or in her seaglass jewellery.
Teaching Art as a primary school teacher was in itself a key influence on her own Art practice.
Dave West’s painting classes contribute significantly to her skills.
Edward J Cook, Silversmith, provides Siobhan with the knowledge and training in making silver jewellery and copper sculpture .
Siobhan learned how to crochet with YouTube!
