Detail of 'Persimons on Kimono' watercolor by Sally Baker

Her still lifes, composed of glass, flowers, persimmons, fabrics, and pottery capture specific moments in time that she feels she is “rescuing”. She endeavors to have the viewer observe the world through her eyes. Her hope is to engage these viewers, encourage them to slow down and take a visual journey with her.

A former high school art teacher, Sally's goal is to help others observe the beauty that surrounds us all daily, to look more carefully, and to see through the negativity in our society and confirm that “Transparency Matters.”
