Living in the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a wonderful source of inspiration. I find myself drawn time and again to paint light, beauty and extravagant colour, which are, I believe, hints of Heaven.
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’ and am blessed to work with a wide range of people with the aim of bringing them a lasting blessing in the form of artwork.
I seek to provide you with something unique that will inspire you and others even in the challenging times. It’s a bit ambitious perhaps, yet nevertheless it is what I love to do!
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
