Sillier Than Sally (aka Sally Walsh, born 1980) is a mixed media and watercolor artist based in sunny Sydney, Australia. Sally’s figurative and wildlife creations are fun, lively and often embody her own cheeky and playful spirit. Working across a variety of mediums, Sally creates commission pieces and gallery art with regular exhibitions both locally and abroad, while Sally’s dynamic and vibrant murals can be seen dotted across a variety of Sydney’s walls. As a way of inspiring creativity in others, Sally also runs a variety of art workshops to both adult and school student groups.
Sally’s watercolor style is loose, fluid and gestural with realistically rendered pockets of detail that breath life, vitality and playfulness into her creations. While Sally’s mixed media art creations evolve organically through a variety of multilayered techniques (mark making with everyday objects, collaging with vintage and found papers, layering with abstract and drippy brush strokes, stenciling and spray painting to name a few) into intriguing art pieces where each layer’s story, history and texture peeks through to accentuate the final figurative and eye catching imagery.
