Siobáin Drury completed a Fine Art degree in Liverpool and a Masters in Art & Education in her hometown of Birmingham. After a career as a Lecturer in FE, she is happily settled in Stroud where she continues to develop her creative practice and is employed as the administrator of the GPC.
Siobáin likes to play with ideas as much as composition & colour – fluro/neon is her current obsession. PLAY is very important in her work and she is informed by theoretical work of Schiller, Kant & Dewey. She considers Printmaking a medium of infinite possibilities, and works with silkscreen methods, mono printing, collographs and etching, often combining disciplines and making unique prints (U/P), she rarely makes editions and therefore most of her prints are ‘one-offs’ or variations.
The passing of time, inspiration from film & music and the ‘overlooked’ are concerns that recur in her work and Siobáin considers it impossible to ignore issues of social & political injustice.
