About
 


Sally originally studied 3D Design specialising in Jewellery in Birmingham. However she subsequently made her career as a conservator of paintings in a national museum, eventually returning to jewellery design in 2000.

Since then Sally's designs have developed more towards sculptural objects and she has begun to make work on a larger scale.

Her inspiration comes from a combination of influences of architectural and engineering structures, the theories of Constructionist art and the exploration of metal behaviour. Sally has worked in precious and non precious metals including gold and silver and more recently, mild steel, bronze and copper.

Following a visit to Tate St Ives iSally has continued to develop themes of colour interaction in watercolour medium - an interest she has sporadically explored for some years, linked inextricably to her long career as a conservator of paintings.

Most recentlyher paintings have veered more towards portraits and street scenes, mostly painted in oil paint on board.
