Sian Daniel MSDC
Sian has lived most of her life in Kenya. When she arrived in Kenya she started a company designing and printing fashion items which were sold all over the world. She then went on to work with nomadic tribes in Northern Kenya, designing and teaching them how to make craft items for export and also managing the retail outlets for a large East African Hotel chain.
Now, having lived in Pembrokeshire in west Wales for the last few years, she is blending her African experience of colour shape and form with the colours and shapes of the northern hemisphere to create interesting objects. She experiments with combining her skills of oil painting, paper mache and metal work to create fun quirky objects.
