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
"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 an 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 peace, joy and happiness in the presence of one of my pieces. In addition to my painting is my love of using found objects, being in my art or up-cycling furniture
and Textiles and I am open to commissions which would help extend and/or re-new the use of a given object - hence my EMPORIUM OF THE FOUND! Feel free to contact me to discuss any project that will help us live more sustainably.
