Biography


 
Sally loves painting!  She loves the sensation of pushing, dabbing, smearing, and brushing paint on the canvas.  "I feel so alive when I paint - it makes me drool!"   
 
She presently is not devoting as much time as she would like to painting. She is still working full time and though her job is enjoyable, the down side is, it does not involve paints.   Since 1994 she has worked at Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site as the Geomatics specialist and only now has begun to work on a series of paintings capturing her love of Keji.
 
Sally was born in 1950 in Winnipeg, Manitoba and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia.  She now resides in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia with Adrian Nette.  She is the mother of three, and has the privilege of being stepmom/friend to Adrian's two children.  Sally also has the joy of being Nana to Rory, Koal and Prys and Oma to Adrien, Stella, Sam, Ireland and Cate. 
 
Though for the most part she is self taught, she has had the privilege of learning and painting with some wonderfully gifted artists.  As well, Sally loves getting together with friends for a day of painting.
