Sally Fisher, painter, and Martin Smith, sculptor, root their artistic practice in nature.

Sally’s subject is the endless change of light on earth and water, its subtle ebb and flow, its brightness and mysteries. For Martin, discovering a form in random stone, revealing its strengths and flaws and responding to them, is a path to a piece that, through careful form and a high finish, reveals the nature of the stone itself and the interplay of light and shadow on it. The works of both artists are echoes of their individual experiences of nature.

About the Artists

She qualified as an Adult Art Tutor at Camden Working Men’s College, where she then taught, as well as at Marlborough College Summer School and many other art centres in London, Devon and Buckinghamshire. She has exhibited widely including at the Mall Galleries, Highgate Literary Society, and Harbour House Gallery.

Martin Smith studied sculpture at the Centro d’Arte Verrocchio and at Arco Arte, both in Tuscany, and at West Dean College in England.
