Sally's thick impasto oils create a wonderfully lush and textural surface. Her subtle palette, playful themes and bold application of the paint gives her a highly individual style which is sought after by art collectors, admirers and international interior decorators. Many of Sally's paintings are created plein air (or 'on site') which gives them a vibrant and immediate energy which cannot be achieved in the studio. Given the scale of her works this represents a physical achievement almost as much as an artistic one.
