Sally was born in Beloit, Wisconsin and moved to Winnetka, IL, a suburb of Chicago when she was seven years old. Growing up on the shores of lake Michigan and spending summers at camp in Michigan on an inland lake gave her a deep appreciation for nature, the outdoors and its unending landscape. Her interest in painting was cultivated during high school with class work, and continued while enrolled at The Art Institute of Chicago during summers. Sally continued her painting practice in college at The University of Arizona completing her BFA degree. She has held positions of corporate graphic artist and art director.
Today, Sally paints with watercolor and gouache and cherishes the connection she has with nature and the outdoors. She continually is evolving as an artist. Her abstracted landscapes, use broad swaths of color and many times non-representational colors and shapes.
Sally paints in her studio in Winnetka and in her summer studio in Northern Michigan. At times she paints en plain air. She has participated in both group shows and solo shows. She is an active member of three art centers and is a member of The Leelanau Women Artists, and Art Makers North.
Sally is currently represented by Laughlin Gallery in Highland Park, IL., Button Gallery in Douglas Michigan and Synchronicity Art Gallery in Glen Arbor Michigan. She can also be followed on Instagram and Facebook.
