Sally has been been passionate about colour ever since she had a box of crayons. She is drawn to expressing the celebratory in the everyday. Her work ranges from a contemporary approach to traditional still life, to travel sketchbooks and drawings on till-rolls. Being visually impaired has been a significant factor in the development of her art practice and her professional career. Sally’s practice continues to be primarily as a painter, but she also works increasingly using photography, printmaking and film. While passionate about painting, she has also become interested in the possibilities of combining this much loved painting tradition with digital technology. Sally has also begun to incorporate writing in her work having developed an interest in artistic applications of audio-description.
