Sally's talent for the Arts began as early as Grade School. Each day, you would find Sally creating drawings for her classmates and passing them out during classes.
While in High School, Sally was chosen as a finalist in the very competitive Pennsylvania Governors School for the Arts Summer Scholarship Program.
Upon graduation from High School, Sally pursued and received and Associates Degree in Illustration Arts. While pursuing her Arts Degreee, Sally also took photography and computer classes, learning the basics of lighting and computer art programs.
As a mother of three children, Sally discovered a passion and love for the camera, while trying to capture every moment of her children's childhood years. Sally purchased her first digital camera when she became a grandmother. As she captured her granddaughter's first years using the digital camera, she discovered an even greater passion for photography.
Sally purchased almost every program she could find to use with her photographs. While using many formats, she began creating videos using photographs and music of her choice.
Sally decided to pursue a career involving her two loves, Art and Photography. In 2009, Sally relocated to Nashville, TN from Pennsylvania, and found a wonderful church. She has been perfecting her talents, working with the church's video camera and editing departments. She is now doing professional videos.
In conclusion, Sally would love to share her love of life, photography, artistic skills, and the Lord with everyone. Thank you for taking the time to learn about Sally and her many talents. May God bless you all.
