Living in the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a wonderful inspiration. I am captivated by light, beauty and extravagant colour, which are hints of Heaven itself and the a reflection of the goodness of God.
I have had the privilege of walking my art journey with some amazingly gifted artists in my family, as well as locally and in France. I was delighted to be awarded the Pat Higgins award by Beechwood Artists in 2016 for ‘Azure’ .
I believe we are all created as unique and each of us brings something special to this life. Art provides a great opportunity to do just that.
What others say about my work:
“I absolutely love the picture I have of the bluebells in Ashridge with the deer hiding which you painted. It always makes me happy and it’s my favourite painting – what a blessing it’s been to me over some tough times.” – Laura
“Sally organised and skilfully led a superb creative arts retreat for us. Guests were so appreciative of the opportunity to express themselves through various creative media.” – Clive Orchard, Warden and Team Leader, Ffald-y-Brenin
