Siobhan Conyngham spent her childhood in Denmark, Argentina, Indonesia and Turkey. She studied History of Art at University College, London, was a guest student at the Royal Academy of Arts, London and trained as a conservator of easel paintings with Paul d’Aguilar (Courtauld) London.
She returned to Ireland to live and work as an artist and painting conservator, surrounded by drumlins, lakes, lanes and overgrown hedgerows. Her paintings are inspired by the colours and textures of that landscape. They aim to reflect on impermanence in the Buddhist sense, and the changing nature of everything around us. Her aim is to convey something of these fleeting tones and passing moments.
She paints in oils and tempera, often with paints made from the pigments in their raw state, either on canvas or panel. She applies the paint in all sorts of different ways depending on the mood needed, using paint brushes, fingers, palette knives, sponges and cloths.
She has exhibited in solo exhibitions in The Newry Arts Centre, Newry, Co Down, The Guinness Gallery, Dublin, and The Toradh Gallery, Co Meath and in numerous group exhibitions including the The Tom Caldwell Gallery, Belfast and The Sandford Gallery, Dublin. Her work is in public collections including the OPW, Meath and Louth County Council, and private collections in Ireland, Europe and the USA.
