She exhibits regularly in and around Salisbury and is a member of the South West Society of Botanical Artists.

Sally is a founder member of the Salisbury Florilegium Society, a group of local artists and students who are putting together a collection of paintings of plants from the gardens in the Close.

Last year Sally completed a commission of 11 paintings for Saga Cruises, providing the artwork for one of the suites on their new cruise ship ‘The Spirit of Discovery’, due to be commissioned this year.
