"I use a combination of gestural marks and the interaction of color in oil and acrylic to paint expressions of the natural landscape in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley where I live. Through the use of automatic, messy, and unconsious marks I also explore how our flawed, human species coexists with the perfection of nature, and express the flip-side to our bucolic landscapes."
Sally Veach formed the identity of an artist early in childhood, after impressing classmates with horse drawings on the blackboard. Over her childhood, this interest grew into the enjoyment of challenge, skill, and expression. She took several years of private art study, won awards, interned in New York City, and earned a BFA in Illustration from Syracuse University’s School of Visual and Performing Arts in 1984. But after some time in the graphic arts, Veach settled down in rural Woodstock, Virginia to devote herself to marriage and children.
In 2011, Veach began to rediscover her artistic voice. She is currently painting full time at her studio in Woodstock, Virginia. Veach continues to study the theories and principles of art in master classes and workshops. She is proud to be a graduate of renowned artist, Nicholas Wilton's, Art2Life Creative Visionary Path and is a member of his Art2Life Academy. Other instructors include Casey Klahn and Mary Bentz Gilkerson.
She continues to be accepted into national and regional juried exhibitions. Notable solo exhibitions are scheduled 2018 at The Delaplaine Arts Center in Frederick, MD and The Barns of Rose Hill in Berryville, VA, and Larkin Arts in Harrisonburg, VA. She exhibits at Shenandoah Vineyards in Edinburg, VA, and her work is held in private collections throughout the United States.
