A Graphic Design graduate from Brighton College of Art, Sally is a painter and printmaker working full-time from her Thames-side studio in West London.

Her work is inspired by music, literature and the human condition – with all its vulnerability.

Drawing is at the heart of her work. Often drawing wet ink and charcoal into wet watercolour.  Moving oil on metal plates to create painterly effects.

She likes to experiment with different mediums – choosing whatever materials will bring her subject to life. Sally loves the “happy accident” in her work and juxtaposing, layering and interweaving imagery.

An early interest in Myths, Folk Tales, and Poetry are all influences. Humour and “tongue-in-cheek” History of Art references are in evidence. Although Sally’s work has a strong narrative content, there is always something unexplained, mysterious and strange.

There is a strong design influence in her work, from her experience as a Layout Artist and freelance Graphic Designer. Sally often uses collage to plan her works, for its immediacy, strong shapes, surrealist and humorous potential.

Sally is an elected member of The Society of Graphic Fine Artists and an Associate member of The Society of Women Artists.
