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 most of my 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, lyrical and expressive; always a playful mixture of textures and colours.

Really beautiful card, unique artwork and well printed!


These were amongst the best-received presents I’ve ever given — thank you so much! One day I’m going to buy an original of yours.


Prints arrived today, thank you for the quick posting. They look great! … I’ve climbed Mam Tor countless times in all weathers and they really capture the spirit of her.
