ABOUT SALLY WILSON

In 2005 she suffered a traumatic brain injury and broke her drawing hand very badly. The accident had a drastic impact on the type of work Sally could produce. In the first two years of recovery, she had minimal use of her hand and as a result, a simple free-stitch sewing machine became her only drawing implement. Much of the work in the early recovery phase reflected this but as her hand improved the work has diversified to incorporate her love of metalwork and mixed media.

The majority of work Sally produces are exhibition/event or competition pieces rather than work produced for commercial purposes. This allows her to cope with her ongoing health challenges although she occasionally takes on unusual commission work.

In 2016 Sally won the prestigious Hand & Lock prize for embroidery.
