"Once You're Real You Can't be Ugly" Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit
Siobhán is an artist and illustrator based in Carlow, Ireland. Her paintings look at the feelings and emotions that memories from childhood evoke, the part obscured window into our sense of self. Identity, love, nature and dreams are recurring themes. Her work evolves from play; from a world of possibility and freedom. She is drawn to fantasy; curdled imagery and surreal parallel existence found within.
What started as a project to make art for her daughters room has evolved into 'Cuckoo Aboo', a design and accessory line which specializes in quirky bright inspirational wall art. Siobhán sells her prints, jewellery and cards under the label Cuckoo Aboo around Ireland. Click here for the full story.
