 ARTIST'S STATEMENT

SIOBHAN COX-CARLOS, B.A. (Fine Art)
Siobhan Cox-Carlos is a painter, known for her use of vibrant colour and love of texture and pattern. Cox-Carlos was awarded an honours degree from Limerick College of Art & Design
(2004)

"My work is mainly influenced by my love of nature, in which I am immersed in my native Co.Roscommon, Ireland. I find inspiration in the hedgerows, flowers and grasses growing wild in my surroundings and am equally appreciative of the beauty beyond my local landscape. I intend the viewing of my art to be an uplifting experience and use a vibrant range of colours, textures and patterns.

Above all I hope that the viewer will forget all of what is going on in the
present turbulent times and experience even a moments joy and happiness in the presence of one of my pieces"
