About

Sian Vernon artist in her studioAbout Sheffield artist Sian Vernon (née Hughes)

Sian Vernon (nee Hughes), is a British artist based in Sheffield, UK. Combining her love of art and nature, she creates contemporary Peak District art; original landscape paintings and drawings which celebrate the British countryside and its wildlife. In particular she is fascinated by the effect of the changing seasons and weather conditions on the ‘wild’ landscape and big skies of the English Peak District. The hills and heather moorland between Hathersage and Castleton in the Hope Valley in Derbyshire provide almost daily inspiration.

Drawing and painting from life, memory and from her own photographs, she experiments with various media and try to capture the atmosphere and her experience of the landscape rather than always trying to get an accurate likeness. Her work is therefore often atmospheric, dark and moody; sometimes abstract, lyrical and expressive; always a playful mixture of textures and colours.
