Sally attended the Stroud School of Art, followed by Bower Ashton in Bristol. During her early training Sally had a strong interest in textile design, hints of which still show through in her work today. Sally likes to experiment with all manner of painting materials, both conventional and inovative – but always the very best quality. Sally describes her main two extravagances as ~ ‘Vintage Clothing and really expensive art materials from around the world’ .
The vitality and riot of colour that make Sally’s paintings so spectacular are possibly echoes of her extended stay in Bali. Her paintings are made up of many layers of colour, glaze and wash – the technique qorks on two dimensions, from a distance the flowers are almost botanical studies – however, up close the dribbles, splashes and strockes are like tiny, individual works or art. Strong impressionistic style with contemporary experimentation is the wonderful combination that culminates in Sally’s finished work. There is riotous energy, yet tranquil calmness found in her painting, which as Sally’s confidence grows as an artist is becoming more detailed, yet ever more balanced.
Buyers of Sally’s paintings range from new to buying art through to serious art collectors. Her work is recognised as technically very skilful, a subtle talent that captures the scene as an expression of what Sally sees. Our customers who have bought her paintings find themselves drawn to the work, more often not returning for more! Sally’s paintings are enhancing to live with – restful, calm, intriguing. Oh…and look pretty good too!
