About Sian

Sian is a self taught illustrator from South Yorkshire, England. She studied Fine Art at university to then quickly realise it wasn’t really what she wanted but stuck it out anyway.

After a long string of jobs, she currently works as a primary school teacher but has hopes and dreams of making illustration her future!

Sian was very lucky to me Helen Mackenzie Smith from Bell and Lomax agency whilst doing a summer school course in children’s books illustration as Anglia Ruskin. Helen helped Sian get her book, ‘This Bear, That Bear’ published by Templar books in 2017.

Sian is represented by the Group Agency. Any illustration enquiries need to go through my agent Amy Fitzgerald

Illustration process

Working on her iPad in Procreate, Sian’s current work plays with light and has a real focus on texture with lovely painterly qualities to them. Her work includes cute and fluffy animals as well as people.
