Siân has been drawing and painting horses since she could first hold a pencil, and she has had many years experience of working in pastel, watercolour, oil and pencil. Her commissions have included ‘Jingle Bell V; winner of the Yang di Pertua Gold Cup’, which hangs in the Penang Turf Club, and ‘Ricochet’ for World Three Day Event Champion, Blyth Tait. Her clientele extend as far afield as Spain, the USA, New Zealand and Japan. A lifelong love of horses has led to her specialising in equestrian subjects, but her portfolio also includes a wide range of animals and portraiture. She is a keen observer of animal behaviour, and she particularly enjoys the challenge of drawing from life, whether from animals or at life drawing classes. She bases her work not only on these observations, but also from an extensive knowledge of anatomy and movement.
Siân has been an active member of the SEA for many years, and has been a regular exhibitor in the SEA’s Annual Exhibitions in both London and Tuxford. She is a past winner of the PQ International Prize for the best Polo exhibit and the prize for the Best Hunting Picture. She has also exhibited regularly in Newmarket with the SEA, with the Armed Forces Art Society, and at the Obsidian Gallery.
