Sally Sanders lives in the West, dwarfed by mountains and the endless sky, continually surrounded by beauty that finds its way onto her canvas. She has freelanced in calligraphy and illustration since 1981, serving both private and corporate clients, each one different, each one fascinating. As a calligrapher, she appreciates the power in the artfully written word, how it enters the reader's mind, then speaks within the heart. Traditional forms are the foundation for Sally's lettering, giving her modern scripts new strength and integrity. As a painter, Sally enjoys the thrill and terror of exhibiting her watercolors, and seeing them through the eyes of others. Teaching has always been an important part of Sally's artistic life. In teaching calligraphy to adults she is inspired and challenged by her students. Teaching elementary school art expands her horizons and demands experimentation with unfamiliar media. And teaching English, an art in itself, has taken her to China and Peru.
