Color-rich canvases of fascinating papers, fabrics, paints, inks, original & borrowed photographs,
yarns, beads and ephemera come together in fanciful delights.

     

 

Born in Connecticut to parents who indulged artful wishes of paints, inks, dyes, plaster and every other means to create, Sally was exposed to nature, people, architecture & the arts, all influencing her work to this day. With a combination of formal training and self taught methods, she’s seen professional successes with painted furniture & accessories, art quilts, wearable art, jewelry design, as well as cooking and baking. A fertile mind rarely devoid of inspiration, Sally’s philosophy is simply: ‘Start!’. Entertaining each flight of fancy would be overwhelmingly impossible but none at all possible without a beginning. Taming a wild imagination to see visions through to fruition is a real and enjoyable way of life. But, alas, a start is the only way to the underlying hope of ‘Finish’. Embracing tangets often leads to new and compelling pathways and, more often, stunning outcomes.

This collection, Portals and Passageways, was influenced by architecture and travel. Real, surreal and with straight up fantasticality, this collection allows viewers to travel and discover fanciful and compelling places. Works in acrylics, inks, decoupage, kirigami, fabrics, silks, yarns, glass beads and ephemera brought together to produce fascinating, color-rich canvases.
