Sally graduated from Middlebury College with a BA degree in Art History, but did not start to paint seriously until 1981 when she was in her forties. Taking a adult-ed course at Munson Williams Proctor Art Museum, Utica, NY, in watercolor, she was hooked!! Starting with still- life, landscapes etc., she discovered the fun of painting flowers, which began to become more and more abstract. With abstraction came the need for more oomph and texture, thus making the switch to acrylics necessary.
Through the years she has taken many workshops with good artists, learning new techniques with each one. She has also entered many shows and has won a few awards -- which is nice!! Sally has also had some private shows, and recently finished one with a quilter friend. In fact, they have had three shows together, realizing that her quilts and Sally’s paintings went together beautifully—both being quite abstract. -
Her work is totally abstract, using collage and stamping as well as the paint. She is always looking for articles in stores for texturing and collaging.
Sally lives with her husband and framer (he only frames the ones he likes!) in Savannah , GA. They have four grown children (married with children) whom they love and love to visit!
