Full of joy and exuberance, Sally Anne Fitter’s paintings inspire an instant feeling of happiness. Taking inspiration from flowers, fruit and decorative everyday objects, Sally uses her strong sense of design to create imaginative still life compositions that invite the viewer to look at the ordinary and familiar in a new way.
Sally’s artistic roots stem from her interest in ceramics and textile design. She first studied ceramics at Bristol Art School, where she gained a First Class Honours degree, before then going on to teach art and ceramics at Latymer Boys School in London. After completing a textile design course at Chelsea School of Art, Sally established her very own studio, ‘Digby Morton Designs’, which she continued to run with great success for nearly ten years. During this time, she sold her designs in London, New York, Japan, Paris and Milan to clients including Liberty’s of London, Calvin Klein, Cerruti, Monsoon and Ralph Lauren, New York.
Sally’s background as a textile designer is evident in her unique style and sophisticated use of pattern and colour. Though working primarily in acrylic, she often incorporates collage and gold or silver leaf into her paintings, applying various techniques such as layering and scraping back to create a range of surface textures. Combined with her warm, rich palette of fearless colours, Sally creates work that is vibrant, luminous and full of interest.
Since relocating to Norfolk and turning professionally to painting in 2003, Sally has achieved great success as a painter. Over the years, she has become widely recognised and represented throughout the country, and she was also recently selected for both the Norwich Castle Open and the Eastern Open. Her bold, vibrant paintings continue to delight and inspire, capturing the eyes of contemporary collectors eager for singular additions to their collections.
