“I grew up between the mountains and the sea. This landscape is my inspiration, with its dramatic beauty, changing moods and hidden places. Using a palette knife, I try to reflect a sense of place rather than just representation; to put on canvas my personal response to the natural world which hopefully others will connect with and enjoy.”

Sian McGill was born on St. David’s Day 1973, in South Wales. After gaining a degree in English at Swansea University, she returned to a childhood love of art, pursuing this alongside bringing up her young family. Painting began as a passion and soon went on to become Sian’s full-time occupation. An expressive and intuitive painter, Sian works mostly with a palette knife but also paints with brushes, uses her fingers or whatever else comes to hand to get the desired effect. She enjoys experimenting with mark-making, colour and texture to create a variety of effects - this often leads to a degree of unpredictability, allowing the paintings to emerge almost by themselves. Sian regularly exhibits at galleries in Wales and Cornwall and has also had work selected for the Royal Cambrian Academy. Her latest work features some of the most beautiful locations around the South Hams.
