Sally- Ann Johns was born in London and moved to Edinburgh as a teenager. She studied Design and Craft at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, graduating in 1999 with an Honours Degree, and in 2000 she received her post graduate diploma. She now lives in the west end of Edinburgh where, after completing a masters in product and furniture design in 2007, she established her private studio.
Over time she has found herself using reflected light, surrounding drawings with gold and then framing them in a gold-lined box. The box is intended to capture and reflect light back towards the viewer, inviting them to consider another realm within the case and allowing each image to stand alone, surrounded by the constantly changing light that shimmers around it. The result is a magical drawing captured in reflected light.
Sally-Ann’s pieces range from 32cm to 1 meter in diameter. Each piece is a unique pastel drawing surrounded with gold leaf, and is encased in a hand crafted black lacquered gold lined case. Sally is happy to take commissions, and should you wish to discuss any ideas she would be delighted to hear from you.
