The artist was born in Zimbabwe, her father a miner, and her mother a dancer.
She was two when the family had a car accident which left her inspirational mother paralyzed. Brought up on remote mining villages in the African bush, her escape from a shattered world was through painting.
Sally acquired a BA in Fine Arts (painting and printmaking) at the university of Cape Town, South Africa, and won the Mc Iver Prize for painting.
Since immigrating to Israel in 1982, she has been continuously working in her studio, and exhibiting. Working for years with pulp and mixed media, her pieces reflect a raw sense of connection - like that of a mosaic and collage.
Today, using acrylics on canvas, her paintings mirror the underlying timing in life, that shattered, sharply faceted world where nothing is taken for granted.
