Seventy Birthday Celebration
To celebrate a very special 70th birthday. The Chrysanthemum is the birth flower for January and it symbolises devotion, loyalty and love
An Iris for baby Iris
This composition was created for a new baby grandchild named Iris. The butterfly symbolises transformation, change, hope and life.
To celebrate the birth of an excitedly anticipated new baby the rose is the birth flower for June. The two roses represent the new parents and the rose bud the baby. Pink roses symbolise grace and sweetness and other interpretations include courage, love, gentleness, joy, appreciation, thankfulness and elegance.
Fortieth Birthday Flower Series
Every month has its own flower and this commission was based on the flowers associated with each member of the family to celebrate the clients wife’s 40th birthday. The full series included a full colour and monochrome version of each flower: violet, rose, daisy and delphinium.
Dorset Landscape View
To celebrate a 85th birthday this piece was inspired by the Dorset landscape and view from the terrace where the birthday celebrations took place.
Siobhan created this composition as a wedding gift for a young couple. The composition portrays the flowers associated with the month of their wedding, birthdays and the colour theme of the wedding day.
As well as producing an original work to a brief, it is always possible to recreate a painting to fit a specific space or colour scheme.
A visitor to the Winter Art at Frogmoor exhibition saw this painting and requested a smaller version to fit a particular space on her kitchen wall.
This commission was a request for a series of four different flowers to celebrate the clients grownup daughters.
Each composition was drawn from life using flowers in Siobhan’s garden, the surrounding hedgerows and a friend’s garden.
When the completed framed paintings were delivered the client exclaimed “now I have all my girls with me and can look at them every day”.
