Sally Bowman - Mixed Media, Scrapbooking, Art Journaling and Project Life
I grew up in Sway and am lucky enough to still live in the beautiful New Forest, with my husband Russell and our two grown-up children.
I have made things for as long as I can remember, and my passion is papercrafting and mixed media. I have perpetually inky fingers!
I love to teach: I have the best job there is. My favourite moment in a class is when someone who thinks they aren't creative makes something they love: the look on their face is why I do my job.

Kim Whitby - Artist, Sky Arts 2016 Portrait Painter of the Year
I am driven to make pictures of thing that visually interest me in
my environment and close geography. The impression of colours
or light, shapes and tones capture my attention. I have always
painted and drawn directly outdoors and in. I am lucky to have
had the experiences of rural Wales, coastal towns and major
historical cities to inspire me. I love to draw and enjoy the
challenge of translating and capturing the essence of three
dimensional things on to paper, even when they are moving. I am interested by how our view is often interrupted or obscured; even within a landscape, and the way that we are able to look ‘through’ obstacles.
I am an experienced and qualified teacher with a current DBS.
Having initially developed my artwork by undertaking a teaching
degree, with art as main subject, I returned to formal art study in
2012 and completed a part time Masters Degree course in Fine Art
in December 2014 at Aberystwyth University.
