Welcome to Charity!
Guernsey and London-based figurative artist, Sally Ede-Golightly, paints with oils on linen. Her work has a loose yet realistic feel. She is drawn to quiet and calm compositions, yet often offsetting ‘calm’ against chaotic themes. Having trained as a portrait painter at London Fine Art Studios and Heatherleys School of Fine Art, her technique is founded on traditional atelier methods but uses a palette and language that she has developed over time.
Sally was awarded the Heatherleys Portrait Prize in 2019 by Daphne Todd OBE. She has exhibited in several prestigious group exhibitions in London including with the Society of Women Artists (SWA), the Royal Society of Portrait Painters (RP) and ING Discerning Eye. She had her first solo exhibition in 2019 at the Gate House Gallery, Guernsey, and has completed notable commissions for private and public collections, including commissions from the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in London. In the Channel Islands she has painted Dr. Nicola Brink MBE for lePassage Gallery in Alderney and WWII Czech-RAF pilot, Jaroslav Novak, for Art for Guernsey, which has been exhibited both in Guernsey and at the Czech Embassy in London.
