Sally Paxton was raised on a farming property on the Murray River in Mildura, Victoria, 42 acres of fruit and bush. That is where her fascination with nature began. Days were filled exploring the banks of the Murray River, climbing trees and observing creatures and their habitat.
As a shy but inquisitive child, at school Sally’s mind was usually daydreaming about the bush, kangaroos and birds. Although in art class, the teachers had her full attention. She left school, married and raised a family. Work circumstances changed for the family and she moved to Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Now she lives on a very different stretch of water, beautiful Yaroomba Beach, walking the dogs on the beach, picking up driftwood and shells, exploring the bush, watching birds and kangaroos.
Art and design have always played an important part in her life, but now Sally has the time to pursue her dream of painting.
Art works held in private collections in Noosa, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Mildura.
