Sally Browne (b. Portsmouth 1974).
Hello and welcome to my website,
I am a full time artist who has been practising on and off since 1993. My ‘gap year’ from the UK to Sydney in 1994 turned into 30 years, and I’m proud to call Australia home. I have always been interested in plants and natural history, so I instantly felt an affinity with the unique landscape and wildlife of my new country. I find purpose and meaning spending time alone in nature (usually with my sketchbook). This quiet contemplation is good for my mental health and also informs my painting practice. 

My practice is centred around drawing and has evolved from my formal studies of surface pattern design, painting, printmaking and graphic design. I am currently exploring the space in between representation and abstraction with a view to pure abstraction in the future.

I relaunched my full-time painting career in 2015 and have been a finalist in several national art awards including the Calleen Award, Greenway Open Art Prize, Lethbridge, Bluethumb Art Prize and the National Contemporary Watercolour Prize. My licensed artwork is featured on homewares and gift ranges internationally, and I exhibit regularly in solo and group exhibitions in galleries throughout Australia. I am currently completing my BFA at Sydney's National Art School, majoring in painting under the guidance of some of Australia's leading contemporary artists, and excited to be evolving my practice and keeping it fresh. If you're looking for my early bird and botanical works please check out the Print Shop section of this site. For original works visit the Galleries section, Studio Sale or get in touch with me directly.
