About Sally Edmonds

After a career in the print industry, Sally Edmonds decided to fulfil an ambition to become a full time professional artist in 2014. Her work reflects her passion for birds , aiming to show the real character of the bird as an individual.

Sally works in pastel, watercolour, colour pencil and acrylics depending on the subject matter and size. Her work leans towards realism but is not photorealistic. Use of exaggerated colour, large size, mark making and a plain background means that Sally’s work is different to the more typical way of depicting birds in their habitat.
