About Me

Sally Holland

Sally Holland
Figurative artist living and working in Dorset, trained to paint large scale canvases for specific locations (largest undertaken:16ft long). Drawing in its different forms is important, and observational drawing fundamental in learning to respond, select and 'design' - leading to an element of abstraction in the work. With an emphasis on shape, pattern & structure the paintings are often developed from line drawings, though ideas can come from anywhere. Portraiture has been a focus, producing images which have found homes all around the world - conveying the individuality, expression & attitude in every face is always a fascination. Also, the commercial areas of illustration & design have occupied much of her career, creating artwork for corporate & household names.
