Sally discovered printmaking over 20 years ago after working in various other media. Sally mainly works with collagraphs, enjoying the endless room for experimentation with different materials. By using multiple plates or the viscosity method, she can explore the opaque and transparent qualities of the inks. The artist plans to try other printmaking methods in the near future, such as safe etching and drypoint.
The themes in Sally’s imagery are taken from personal experiences, books or anything that interests her at the time, from the Green Man to Early English Painting. The initial idea however, often plays a small part as she encourages the imagery to evolve freely.
