This exhibition brings together text and image - poetry and landscape watercolour painting.

Siobhan’s autobiographical poems and landscapes form a visceral and compelling engagement with the textures and stories of the Howick/Maraetai coastline, with particular focus upon her own experience of local Māori and Jewish cultural contexts.

Her work is also very much informed by her own disability. Her paintings draw upon the fluctuating differences in sight she experiences and seizures – much the same as did Van Gogh and artists with similar disabilities.

Siobhan’s paintings and drawings have been published in several art journals including Esthetica and The Same.

Siobhan was also runner up for the 2020 Adam NZ playwriting award. Her poetry, fiction and memoir has been published in a number of literary journals including New Zealand Poetry and World Literature Today.

Last but not least, she is currently editing a poetic illustrated novel about disability and Maori experiences of the New Zealand Wars for publication with Lasavia Press, Auckland.
