Sally Marie Gardner is influenced and energised by the surrounding wilderness of her northern homeland and quality of light, which often become the basis for her expressive creations. Each piece is a direct response to nature and her experiences in it. Whether it be the abundance of flora and fauna, the local wildlife or views over the rugged landscape, all are expressed through the gestural application of paint, creation of layers and texture within her work. Each piece hopes to evoke an emotion from the viewer, create a mood or trigger a memory as well as capture a sense of place.
Since gaining her MA in 2016, Sally has been working on a range of projects as well as exhibiting her contemporary landscapes and abstract pieces in galleries across the UK.
