Sally was born in Adelaide and grew up on a farm at Meningie. She studied Science and has worked as a teacher and in aviation maintenance. Since retiring, Sally has actively pursued art by attending workshops in drawing, oil painting, watercolours and printmaking, including Japanese woodblock. Inspiration from nature and studies in Botany have fuelled her imagination. Her work is contemporary, mostly semi-abstract, incorporating simple line drawing of nudes or development of themes and design.
Sally is an active member of Gallery 54 Collective Inc., Artsparks Art Therapy, Thumbprint Workshop Inc. and Life Drawing Mount Gambier for. She has exhibited locally and in Adelaide.
