Since graduating from Ilam, Canterbury University School of Fine Arts, Sally has painted and exhibited. She has work in Public and Museum collections in New Zealand and private and corporate collections in Australia, North America, Europe and Asia.

Sally works in an advisory role with the World of Wearable Art.


In her most recent series she has looked up for inspiration in an attempt to defy gravity. Many of her paintings are on plain tapa cloth from the Pacific Islands. Tapa has its own inherent organic structure which influences the direction of her imagery and echos traditional geometric Island patterns.

Hybrid animal and vegetable forms have been overlaid with circular and vessel forms to create multi dimensional surfaces exploring concepts of containment and freedom, interior and exterior, extinction and regeneration.
