Sian is a contemporary artist based in Northeast Victoria. Her love of design and art led her to pursue a career in Architecture. On her retirement she rekindled her passion for drawing and painting, attending art classes and workshops by renowned artists and courses at the local TAFE, and travelling overseas with fellow artists on art tours and retreats. These have greatly influenced and enriched her art experiences and work.
Sian draws her inspirations from the natural and man-made environments and her experiences : Nature, landscape, still life and buildings. Her art is a response to and an expression and interpretation of these images. She draws and paints with expressive brushstrokes and lines mainly in acrylics, pastels, pens and inks, working spontaneously and instinctively with layers and splashes of colours, shapes, forms and textures in a contemporary and impressionist style.
Inspired by her love of painting flowers she created “Bouquets Forever”- a customised bouquet painting as a perfect way to preserve and treasure your bouquets forever in a painting as a memento of your special day.
She has participated and sold in many group exhibitions and art shows locally and in Melbourne and has received various awards and commissions for her work. She is currently represented by Wrenwood Gallery and is a Resident Artist of Art Gallery on Ovens, Wangaratta.
