Sian Robertson is a self-taught artist who grew up in Wales, in the UK, and has lived on the Outer Cape for over 20 years. She primarily works with used maps and atlases – cutting, folding, tearing, pasting, and more, to create both 2D and 3D work. Robertson likes to say that a beautiful map makes her heart race and her hand reach for her X-acto knife. Since 2015 she has had solo shows almost annually in galleries in Provincetown, as well as being part of many juried and group shows in galleries and arts institutions in Provincetown, across Cape Cod, and in Boston. Robertson also works with other artists to help them create and maintain their own websites.
