Sally has been in the Aiken area for over 40 years where she raised her family. She enjoys the outdoors, swimming, and kayaking. She has done various forms of art all her life. After retiring in 2018 she has worked mostly in acrylics and enjoys painting abstracts. The “Experiential Process” is her main intent. A contemporary artists she enjoys is German Isabelle Zacher-Finet. Experimentation and new results produce her greatest satisfactions.
Influenced by the great Impressionist, Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, I paint simple familiar subjects with mostly bold colors. Translating 3-D flowers, animals and landscapes into 2-D images using color and values playing against each other in a painterly style is my prime objective. Each painting is a moment in time, put to paper. I want to capture the light, texture and colors of each blossom in my flowers. My media is soft pastels because I love the immediacy of putting color to the page. “Sometimes the fairies come to help” Marla Baggetta.
