Sally Bramble is a Birmingham based artist specialising in landscapes and botanical paintings. Her signature style uses encaustic wax and hologram glitters which lend an iridescent sheen to her work and enhances the texture of the encaustic. She discovered the beautiful medium in 2007 and was immediately smitten with the versatility of the paint and the endless possibilities for mixed media work. Encaustic is a wax-based paint (composed of beeswax, resin and pigment), which is kept molten on a heated palette. It is applied to an absorbent surface and then reheated in order to fuse the paint.
Sally studied Fashion Design at The London College of Fashion, specialising in illustration. Her love of retro textiles is obvious in her recent floral work with gorgeous colours that pop, and a hint of embellishment that catches the eye of the viewer.
Sally has exhibited locally as part of many joint exhibitions, including with Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA), Custard Factory, Midlands Art Centre (MAC), with Creative Alliance (an arts marketing collective) and has also held a two-month solo exhibition at City Inn in Brindley Place in 2007. Sally is also exhibiting as part of a group show at Ikon Gallery in May.
