Sally has been doing art for most of her life, initially painting on rocks and t-shirts as a teenager, and selling them at Paddington Markets in Sydney.
After re-kindling her artistic passion later in life, she first exhibited her work in 2005 at the Braemar Gallery in Springwood and has since sold many pieces.
She has won the People’s Choice Award twice for exhibitions in the Braemar Gallery and recently received an honourable mention for one of her watercolours at the Springwood Community Arts Centre Exhibition.
Sally enjoys working with mixed media predominately using watercolours, ink, and acrylic paint pens.
She draws much of her inspiration from nature and also from people, but likes to interpret what she sees in many different ways, so her style varies from the impressionistic to quite abstract.
Sally was also the lead singer of Blue Mountains band, Thumping Buzzard, who played lots of gigs in the Blue Mountains and Sydney during the 80’s and 90’s. The photos below are from the Thumping Buzzard reunion gig for Springwood Foundation Day, 2013.
Sally is interested in being a part of all types of community projects that focus on bringing the benefits and joy of art to the people of the Blue Mountains.
