Artist of the Month June – Sally Jacob


Sally is a local artist who works in acrylic on canvas. I am fascinated with the darker and hidden sides of human nature, which is often explored by fairy tales and mythology from all over the world. This is a major influence for me, and my work often explores fantasy and the drama found within ourselves. Other influences include the pre-Raphaelite movement as well as modern fantasy artists.Sally loves to work with the human figure, as well as utilising the landscape or architecture as a background. I work in acrylic on canvas and like to paint with very thin layers, this builds up depth and texture.

With work exhibited in the USA (LA, San Diego and Michigan) and Europe Sally is thrilled to be able to mount a show in her local town.
