Sally Wills's Bio

I have lived in Cornwall for 30 years and work from my studio near the Helford River. The highly individual craft of batik has fascinated me for many years and the majority of my work is in this medium.

I am always exploring new possibilities and techniques in this art of painting through the application of wax and paint or dye. By merging imagination with memory, I enjoy the unexpected results achieved on paper and textiles.

My work has evolved from early figurative subjects through to more recent abstractions of nature and life. A wide selection of greeting cards, boxed cards and postcards are available.

I also enjoy printmaking, life drawing and mosaic work. Many of these processes are stimulated by my experience of being in a particular place at a particular time.

I have recently been running day workshops from my home and encourage students to have fun and experiment with shells, mosaic tessarae, glass, stones, beads and other materials. Please contact me if you are interested. These are suitable for beginners and those who want to try something new
