Born in London and now residing in Edinburgh, Sally-Ann Johns studied Design and Craft at Gray’s School of Art at Aberdeen, graduating in 1999. She went on to receive her Masters and Postgraduate Diploma in Product and Furniture at the Edinburgh College of Art 2007.
Her work plays on the reflective qualities of gold leaf. Her gold-backed drawings are boxed into deep frames, capturing the luminescence of the gold, and inviting the viewer to imagine a whole other world within the case. Her stand-alone images constantly change with the effects of the light. The result is a magical drawing captured in reflected light.
Sally-Ann has produced light installations for Cafe 52 in Aberdeen and the Bongo Club in Edinburgh, and has hosted a number of solo exhibitions at venues in both cities. Byard Art have showcased her art at major art fairs abroad and at our Cambridge gallery.
