The beauty that surrounds me everyday motivates me to paint. I realize that I fall in line behind a long tradition of painters who have been likewise compelled. From the blues and golds of Vincent's wheat fields to the soft elegance of Georgia's blooms, I am in good company. As the poet Rumi mused:
“Let the beauty you love be what you do. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.”
Sally Anger grew up in the coastal town of Beaufort North Carolina after moving there at the age of nine. She has loved art all her life, and attended workshops and painted for many years. In 2002 she took the plunge and left a career as a nutritionist to pursue art full time.
She obtained her associate's degree in fine arts from the local community college and then studied for several semesters at a local university's art school before heading off on her own. She continues to explore new ways to express herself through art by experimentation, life drawing classes, critiques with other artists and workshops.
