Sally Anne Fitter is Inspired by Post War Modern Artists like Elizabeth Blackadder and Mary Fedden. Developing themes around Still Life Compositions .
Sally Anne Fitter setup and ran her own Textile Designer Studio, in Clerkenwell, London: so incorporating texture, pattern and composition in her work is second nature.
This collection is inspired by seasonal garden flowers and interiors .
Sally Anne loves using collage, of found patterned papers and gold leaf. She also uses textures to create a multifaceted surface within her painting.
She studied Ceramics at Bristol College of Art, under Walter Keeler, Mo Jupp, and Nicholas Homoky. Sally Anne gained a 1st Class BA Honours.
Going on to set up and run a Textile Design Studio in Clerkenwell, London. Exhibiting and selling in London, Paris, Milan, Japan & New York. Amongst her many customers were; Liberty’s, Calvin Klein, and Ralph Lauren, New York.
Eventually Sally made the logical transition from Textile design to painting; incorporating her decorative past as an inspiration for her paintings, they show her joy in pattern, colour and texture. Her layering of paint, use of collage and gold leaf brings the canvas dynamics to life. Exploring interiors, still life and florals she plays with distorted composition and perspective.
Having painted professionally for many years, she is now an established and experienced painter, exhibiting and selling her work in London. Exhibiting at The Affordable Art Fair for the last 10 Years and has had many solo and joint shows at many gallery’s throughout the country, from Dartmouth to Edinburgh.
