Within the first two decades of her career Sioban Coppinger had gained a reputation in the challenging field of Public Sculpture. Her response to the demands of site and subject matter were transformed into gentle landmarks, which can be seen from Birmingham to Templecombe in Somerset.
Since setting up in Lambourn in 1995, she has created a constant stream of commissioned as well as uncommissioned new work for exhibitions. Sioban takes pleasure from the continuous exploration of ideas and materials - working figuratively in cast bronze, silver, beaten copper, and lead.
Drawing has always provided nourishment for Sioban and she has worked on many etchings with a passion to build up a collection of over one hundred editioned etchings - ranging from sketchbook work to intricate process based and coloured prints. Having used Pastels since childhood, Sioban is using them to produce intimate and lively studies and portraits.
Sioban loves the Lambourn Valley and believes that it 'holds a heart for inspiration'. Her studio is open by appointment, where finished pieces and work-in-progress can be seen.
