Background

Brought up in Malaysia, Sally spent an idyllic childhood at Green Tops primary school in Port Dickson situated on the beach. A daily event was drawing in the sand which she remembers as her earliest source of inspiration. From an early age a paintbrush was always close at hand and her great passion for painting began.

 

Further education followed in Australia where Sally’s cousin, the acclaimed Australian artist Judy Watson, was a great source of inspiration for her.

 

Sally then went to Italy, to the University per de Strainer in Florence, and studied under the eminent artist Signorina Simi.

 

Another strong influence was Dorothy Swain who Sally hugely admires and appreciated her tutorage.

 

Further studies followed at Heatherley’s School of Art in Chelsea and the Inchbald School of Interior Design. Interestingly, this combination of creativity and understanding of interior design created an aesthetic in Sally Clark-Lowes’ work that makes it so eminently collectable. Simply put, it works in the home environment.

 

Today, Sally is a popular member of the Chelsea Arts Club, has had numerous exhibitions and her work is well collected.

 

Her natural exuberance, vivacious personality and beauty transcends to her canvas. Art is her passion and through her subject matter of  the “Botanic” and “Social Comment”, Sally captures a vivid realism with a quirky touch, colours vibrant and exotic.

 

A Sally Clark-Lowes original brings with it a unique quality, enveloping you in the conversation and wit or the beauty and scent of the subject matter.

 

Sally divides her time painting from her studio near Heathfield, always ready to capture the delight of the season, and the South of France which provides another ever-changing landscape to inspire her work.
