…and welcome to the website of Sian Pattenden, artist and writer.
Have a look around. The art stuff is at raw art; the map stuff is below… plus examples of video promos I’ve done and the children’s books. I need to update the biography too. I will do that. Maybe tomorrow.

New Soho Map
I’ve just updated the SohoCreate festival map for 2016.
Please contact me if you would like a bespoke map – they make great presents. Some recent commissions include Bloomsbury; a large section of North London from the City to Muswell Hill and also a highly detailed Tufnell Park map.
You can also buy a limited edition print of the Kentish Town map at my Big Cartel online shop, in A2 size for £65 inc. UK delivery. There are examples of other mapwork on that site including the Poundshop Map of London too.

Agatha Bilke Children’s Books
I have written six children’s books so far, for 8-12 year old persons, three in each series. The Agatha Bilke books are my favourite – I also illustrated the entire series. The Awful Tale of Agatha Bilke was shortlisted for the Glen Dimplex New Writers’ award; the Branford Boase award and the Sheffield Children’s Book Award. It was Children’s Book of the Week in the Sunday Times. There’s a cool Agatha mini site here including the Agatha Bilke theme tune. Oh yes.
The next kids series is The Magical Peppers and is about magic, order and chaos. It was shortlisted for the Surrey Libraries Children’s Book Awards. If you are a school or similarly reputable establishment and would like to book an author visit see the Author Events page, click here. To go to the Peppers mini-site click here: the-peppers.co.uk.
