Her own biography comments and what art meant to her:

“I was born in Louisiana, educated in the South and Midwest (Nebraska and Chicago) and lived inNewYork City and Los Angeles, while working in the publishing feld, and . . . but are these interesting or useful bits of information? I'd rather say that I woke up one morning beneath a cedar tree, brushed off the bright green moss growing on my north side, and set about fnding watercolor paper and paints to use that afternoon. Painting provides away of personal communicationwith people. Working in an art gallery makes it a two-way communication. It is wonderful to see a customer fall in love with a painting or some other piece of work.” Sally’s optimism and way of seeing always kept her anchored to the real world
