Sally's books have to be seen to be believed in particular her textile pieces such as the notebook and pencil below.
"My artistic practice explores boundaries and preconceptions, in particular distinctions between craft fine art and gender stereotyping. My work challenges and subverts activities, traditionally associated with women and domesticity.
I create subtle, yet playful interventions that may be initially overlooked or misread, highlighting the understated, quite virtues and philosophies of craft and that react to the establishment and the fast pace of twenty first century life and challenge our habits of looking.
I manipulate and re-contextualize a wide variety of mundane, found and discarded materials to create a dichotomy between something which is worthless and something that is valued; value, created by the investment of manual labour, care, consideration and time."
