Born and raised in North Yorkshire, Sally Gatie graduated in Fine Art at the University of York.
Sally works in oils and is inspired by consciousness of the human form. Her paintings depict figures within abstract patterned space, at first glance the figures look peaceful and at rest, but steadily the viewer becomes aware that the paintings are energetic, restless and animated. There is a tension between the tenderness of the figure and the unease of the chaos created by the patterned surface.
Sally shows her work at UK art fairs and galleries, and undertakes commissions for paintings and portrait drawings.
