Sally Bufton

Sally recently got contacted by +Art as they saw her work on my Facebook group and wanted to display it around Southsea. (+Art provides creative people opportunities to show their work in "different" venues and provides affordable artwork for businesses). Her work mainly involves using print mediums from screen printing to mono printing. Recently her work has become focused on botany and nature. This series of prints were inspired by the scenery on her road trip around California, and created using lino cuts. She put up her first 3 pieces of work in Southsea Orthodontist gallery space on Tuesday last week and they will be displayed until the end of June.


First year students worked with sections of the narrative of Collodi's Pinocchio in today's studio workshop.
