Sally Newton is a fine artist producing animal portraiture and work inspired by nature. Sally works from her studio at Project Workshops in Hampshire.
Her portraits demonstrate a life long passion for animals. Sensitively capturing the personality of the subject, Sally delivers contemporary, beautiful portraits.
Sally works from life, often outdoors, and uses drawing, painting and printmaking disciplines in her practice. Particularly interested in line and form, Sally uses pencil, chalk, acrylic and watercolour in many of her observational pieces and sometimes develops these further in oil. A passionate printmaker, she is currently working with monotypes to produce unique painterly prints.
Inspired by new ideas and ways of working, she returns to renaissance and early 20th Century period artists time and time again to learn from their work and is a keen follower of modern portrait, landscape and wildlife artists and printmakers. Above all, she is inspired by how the environment forms an integral part of our well being. Her work celebrates all that she finds important about that world, particularly given the significant challenges facing the environment and hopes that her interpretation equally inspires others.
Qualified with a B.A. (Hons) in Fine Art (Printmaking), Sally is a member of the Gloucestershire Printmaking Cooperative in Stroud.
