Sian Vernon Artist

Hi, I’m Sian. I’m a Sheffield based artist, inspired by the windswept hills and moors of the Peak District.

Sheffield, UK

Contemporary Peak District landscape art.

I am 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 lots of inspiration.

Drawing and painting from life, memory and from my own photographs, I experiment with a variety of media to try to capture the atmosphere and my experience of the landscape rather than always trying to get an accurate likeness. My work is therefore often atmospheric, dark and moody; sometimes abstract, evocative and expressive; always a playful mixture of textures and colours.

I am also a full-time mum to two small children and so my time for creating art is rather limited at the moment! This means that I am mostly selling sketches and smaller work on paper, and that commissions and larger scale work are not currently possible.

The Peaks, especially Hope Valley, Edale and Mam Tor are a very special place for me, and your artwork captures them so beautifully, really bringing to life the hidden essence of those hills.
