Sallie was born in Surrey in 1967 but grew up in the West Country. She had an idyllic childhood which nurtured her love of the countryside and passion for animals and nature.
In 1986 she moved to Wales to study Wildlife Illustration followed by two years of Ceramics, by which time she had fallen in love with the wild Welsh hills.
In 2002 Sallie bought a tiny little cottage on a wooded hillside in Carmarthenshire which she loves. She shares it with her four rescue dogs, a motley crew, six glorious cats and a dozen or so chickens. It’s here that Sallie has built a lovely studio that looks out over the garden.
Sallie’s work comes from her life long passion for animals and nature.
“Each piece is as individual as the animals I portray, starting with the clay and glazes that I make from my own recipes to the creature itself which I hand build over a number of days. The huge diversity of animals gives me an ever growing abundance of inspiration although I regularly return to my own favourites the fox and the hare.”
