Sally Bruce Richards
Originally from the South of England, Sally studied Art and Interior Design before moving into a successful career in the latter field, and then subsequently becoming a full time artist. She is currently based on the Isle of Mull.
Although Sally practised Architectural and Technical drawing during her studies, her move to the Isle of Mull liberated her from the restrictions of straight lines and symmetry. Inspired by her immediate environment, she began experimenting with a variety of techniques to reflect in her work the more untamed and unpredictable patterns found in nature.
Having acquired a comprehensive understanding of colour and form during her years as an Interior Designer, Sally carefully chooses palettes that she believes will harmonise with their surroundings. Working on wooden panels, she uses a variety of materials including acrylic, gold and silver leaf, and archival inks to create her unique glimpses into a wild, shimmering world.
