Landscape and the natural world. I love Northumberland, the Borders and the Lake District. These beautiful landscapes are feeding my creative life, any season, all weathers.

Siobhan O'Hehir

My painting is inspired and informed by the natural world.

Observation, imagination and memory are equally important in how I view and experience the world.

The actual process of working is very exciting. I rarely start a painting with a completely fixed idea.

Walking through fields and hills is a source of many ideas. Different weather, states of mind, and company all add a sense of variety and drama to being outside.

Sometimes a place name or historical fact will also indirectly set the agenda and spark off a whole series of ideas.

On a purely visual level, colour, structure, form, texture, strength and fragility are all very important aspects of the landscape that fire up my imagination.
