Sian Elen - Contemporary Art Curator

Sian Elen

Contemporary Art Curator

Sian is an artist; a painter and sculptor. Within her practice she has worked with many groups including youngsters and adults with mental health difficulties. She has teaching experience and has organised various charity art events. Sian finds her own work is enriched by her curatorial role, and she is excited by the exchange of ideas that occurs between artist and curator when preparing for a show. She relishes the contrast between time at home in the studo and the more outgoing approach needed at Brondanw.

She is a mother and grandmother who was born, raised and has lived most of her life in the Croesor valley. She is very excited to be part of this artistic creative team

Rachel Hunt - Collections Curator

Rachel Hunt

Collections Curator

Rachel Hunt worked for the National Trust for 22 years, the last fifteen as House and Collections manager at Cotehele House in Cornwall. A childhood passion for Portmeirion Village brought her here on sabbatical in 2017, and she decided to stay (with a little help from her employers). She divides her time between Portmeirion Village and the Susan Williams-Ellis Foundation at Plas Brondanw.
