As a calligrapher, illuminator and lettering artist Sally-Mae works mostly on commissions and as a teacher but alongside this she makes art work.
This is the time that she is able to work creatively. Working with gold, colour and pattern are of great interest and enjoyment for her and that is reflected in her work.
The words are important and inspire the design. It can be a quote from someone she admires, a poem or personal pieces for family or friends.
She has exhibited and sold her work in many places over the years. See ‘Work for Sale’.
