Sally is a self-taught artist living in Cumberland on Vancouver Island. Her abstracted impressionistic style has evolved in an ongoing conversation with her natural surroundings. Themes in Sally’s art center around: place, memory, and the ever-changing seasons of life.
“I am curious about how our bodies respond to place. In our increasingly urbanized and digitized culture, I work to examine the healing, resilience, and freedom of nature. Through my paintings I explore the narratives between place, identity, nostalgia and the natural world. Working with acrylic on canvas, my painting practice is a response to the movement, texture, and energy of wild spaces.”
“I am passionate about conservation and restoration of wild spaces. I feel thoughtful examination of our relationships to wild spaces will be the key to unlock a happy healthy future on this planet for all critters – humans included.”
