Sally Moore was born in Barry, South Wales in 1962. She trained at the Ruskin School of Art in 
Oxford and subsequently won a scholarship to study at the British School in Rome.

From an early stage in her career Sally’s paintings made an impact, winning her awards at the 
National Eisteddfod, and at the Discerning Eye exhibition in London, where William Packer awarded 
her the critic’s prize.  Sally also won the Welsh Artist of the Year Award in 2005.

The painstaking, detailed style of Sally’s work has necessarily meant a very low output of paintings, 
with the result that her solo exhibitions are infrequent and always eagerly anticipated. Her surreal, 
often humorous paintings are in numerous private and public collections, including the National 
Museum & Gallery of Wales, National Library of Wales, Newport Museum and the Contemporary Art 

The new group of paintings sees Sally develop her themes, where each painting is a mini 
psychological drama - often absurd, sometimes surreal and invariably humorous. Sally herself speaks 
of her hope that her paintings may both amuse and unsettle the viewer. Her collectors will be 
delighted with this superb group of new paintings which promises to repeat the success of her 
previous exhibitions. This show offers an opportunity to see 20 new paintings completed over the past 
three years. All of the work is for sale and may also be seen on our website
