Sally Anne Fitter: The Joy of Nature

5 August to 16 September 2023

Sally Anne Fitter: The Joy of Nature

Sally Anne Fitter is celebrated for her mixed media still lifes that are much loved by our collectors and visitors. In this exhibition, we are delighted to present some of the still lifes with Sally Anne's new, exceptional woodland paintings.

Sally Anne has an imaginative eye for colour with a warm, rich palette. Her vigorous handling, developing surface textures, with numerous painting techniques, lead to a strong sense of design and composition that invites the viewer to look again at the ordinary and familiar.

Sally Anne studied ceramics at Bristol Art School gaining a First Class Honours Degree. She went on to teach art and ceramics at Latymer Boys School, London. After a textile design course at Chelsea School of Art, Sally set up and ran 'Digby Morton', a textile design studio in London. Her designs have been selling worldwide to clients such as Ralph Lauren in New York, Liberty of London, Laura Ashley, Cerrutti, Calvin Klein and Monsoon.

She now spends her time living and painting in Norfolk. Her work uses colour in a vibrant manner with sgraffito and collage being an integral part of her compositions.

Sally Anne Fitter

Sally Anne Fitter studied Ceramics at Bristol Art School gaining a 1st Class BA Hons. She later went on to study Textile Design and eventually set up a London based Design Studio with clients such as Monsoon, Liberty's and Laura Ashley.

Sally works mainly in acrylic on canvas, layering and working into the paint to create texture. Her training as a textile designer is evident in the use of pattern and decoration, sometimes incorporating collage and gold leaf.

She made the logical transition from textile design to painting several years ago and now exhibit widely around the UK. Sally's work is held in private collections in the UK and abroad and is shown at major Art Fairs in London and galleries around the country.
