Siobhan Healy makes sculpture that depicts endangered flora & fauna and is interested in exploring the theme of biodiversity. She creates her work as ethereal images, to suggest the transient and delicate nature of the subjects. In current work, she has combined imagery from her sculptural work in glass, fibreglass & crystal and has created fine art screen-prints with digital images & details with oil paints. These works are then embellished with crystals & diamond dust to add to the sense of preciousness and ask the viewer to consider the potential loss of these species.
