About Sian Ellis

I am an illustrator and mural artist based in South Yorkshire. My playful work adorns walls, shop shutters, comms boxes, shipping containers and even a Chicken Shed in locations across Yorkshire including Whirlow Hall Farm in Sheffield and as part of community regeneration projects in Armley, Leeds and Upperthorpe, Sheffield.

Since 2019 I have been commissioned to paint 32 fibreglass sculptures for Charity Arts trails across the UK including Worcester’s Big Parade, Luton’s Bug Trunk Trail and Go Wild Gorillas Jersey. Although not all of my sculptures were sent to auction, the 18 that have been so far have raised over £104,000 for local good causes across the UK.

In 2023 I was commissioned to design the base sculpture character for the 2024 Snooks with Books art trail which will see 25 6ft tall versions of my original Snook character displayed across York City Centre, each painted by a different artist from across the UK.
