Making photographs draws Sally into exploring the culturally and physically diverse world. Majestic landscapes, winding village roads, busy city streets and laid-back beach towns beckon her.
Sally was born into an Air Force family and moved a lot as a child. Later, she helped her father in his photography studio in Cocoa Beach. These influences sparked her love of travel and photography. She was inspired to take photography courses in college as she pursued her degrees. Sally photographs details that define a place, location, or region. She alters her photographs using various materials to extend or create new meaning and to further indulge her creative side. Sally's art may nudge you to wonder and question perspectives and relate to other realities.
Sally has relocated from Florida to Greer, South Carolina . She is a member of River Arts District Artists (RADA) and her art can be seen at the 310 Art Studios and Gallery in Asheville,NC.
Sally's work has been displayed around Cocoa Beach including The Beachside Resident business office, Simpler Times Gallery, Coastal Produce market, Studios of Cocoa Beach gallery, Cocoa Beach Public Library and Juice N Java cafe and wine bar. Outside of Cocoa Beach her work has been exhibited in a juried Kaleidoscope art show at Eau Gallery in Melbourne, Florida, Florida Wax (a chapter of International Encaustic Artists) encaustic group shows at the Sanford Welcome Center, University Park in Winter Park and Casselberry Art House in Casselberry, and has been published in a National Park brochure, Liquid Lines newsletter, Cocoa Beach Lifestyle magazine, Travel + Leisure online, Que Pasa? Puerto Rico tourism magazine, various travel and tourism websites and other promotional material.
A few years ago, she was the recipient of a second runner up award for a photograph she entered in a Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation photography contest. And as a teacher, she sponsored after-school photography clubs.
Sally continues to travel by RV, photograph and make original art from her photographs.
