Sally Browne is a visual artist from Sydney, best known for her stylised
paintings of Australian flora and fauna. Sally grew up in the UK where she
commenced her formal studies in art and surface pattern design, before
travelling throughout South East Asia, and eventually settling in Sydney.
“My work is informed by the wild nature that flourishes in the unkempt
gardens and streets of my inner city neighbourhood. I use colour, composition
and expressive line to create two dimensional narratives of my surroundings.
Our flora and fauna here in Sydney is exotic and unique, and for the moment,
still thriving in pockets amongst the hum of the big city backdrop.
The paintings in this collection are inspired by the incredible “backyard bird
life” surrounding my inner city home, and the patterns I find in the variety
of native and exotic plant species that grow together in its streets and gardens
- the tree barks, leaf veins, petals, and fruit. Representing them in my work is
a way of sharing my development of connectedness and identity in this place I
love and now call home. “
