Sally Lancaster | ArtGallery.co.uk
Born in 1975, Sally is a Devon-based artist who like many of the best painters today, is entirely self-taught. Characterised by fine brush strokes on subtle backgrounds, Sally's focus is always on the beauty of the subject itself, often observed from an unusual angle. She is fascinated by detail, capturing every expression, movement and subtlety of the subject. Sally's original art and portraits are highly respected and she meticulously produce paintings to evoke emotions and allow the viewer to enjoy the beauty and true personality of the subject. Sally is an Academician of The South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts and regularly exhibits in various galleries around the UK.
