SPECIALTY: ✔ Generalist
I am Sally Walsh, otherwise known as Sillier Than Sally, and this art world of mine is a whimsical, candy coloured wonderland. It is clamouring with fun and joyful water colour birds, animals, florals & whimsical boho ladies.
My art style is loose, light and filled with pockets of realism and splotchy goodness. As an Australian artist, I draw a lot of my inspiration from my beautiful natural surroundings, and also from many travels around the world which I showcase in my work… while I do combine a variety of materials at times, my favourite art supply go-to is none other than delicious watercolours.
Listed below are this Mentor’s specialty skills. Join this group if you want to grow in these areas.

MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
For years now I have been teaching in-person water colour workshops, as exploring the magic of water colours with new artists – and seeing that love of water colours, burst through them & blossom over time, ignites my soul.
Other projects that keep me ever so busy, are working on commissions of people, pets and beloved houses. Also painting live at weddings & events. Producing art for art licensing on products (my own ranges & with other awesome companies). Launching & selling original art series online. Painting murals. Having exhibitions here in Sydney and overseas and also creating fine art print ranges for sale through my own Sydney studio and through Print On Demand companies worldwide.
I am also a mum of two little boys (beautiful little handfuls, now 4 & 8), so I know full well, the struggle to sometimes carve out enough time for art. I have learnt to master the art of creating in stolen moments of time, to remove (internal & external) obstacles in the way of my art making time, and to continue to build my flourishing art business, while keeping my children alive and happy – which has not always been an easy feat! =)
