Interview with Sally Eppstein.

1. Who are you and what do you do, and what is your background?

I was born in Augusta, Ga and considered myself an army brat since my West Point graduate dad retired when he was 53 and I was just three.  I grew up visiting  the campus of Augusta College where he taught accounting as a second career. My sister who is 17 years older  and my three brothers lived around the world but I believe there are pros and cons to how we were both raised.
Food and art are my main two loves. I debated about going to culinary school or to art school and art won because I knew I wanted a family and I did not want to work restaurant hours while I raised a family.

I went to Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC for an associates in jewelry and received my BFA from Augusta College that is now call Augusta State University. 

2. What's integral to your art and or art career?
Peace and quiet. When I lived by myself before I got married, I was quite prolific but since I have been married and raising my son and step kids I have found it harder to be as focused on my art as I would like. My youngest will be going off to college soon and I am looking forward to being prolific again.

3. What themes do you pursue and what medium do you use?
I started painting with oils as a child until after college but now I mainly use acrylic paints and different gel mediums from Golden Paint. My latest adventures have been making sculptures with wood and stainless steel.

All of my art is inspired from nature.

General News

Ashley L. Schick will be part of an Artist Talk at Kai Lin Art on Saturday, October 1st. The exhibition will be on view through October 15th. My series, "Field Studies," is the result of a 10 year studio practice of thinking in colors and layers. Patterns, textures, and organic forms inspire each hand-cut, hand-assembled composition. The imaginary worlds -- with fragments of nature and culture, monuments and experience, islands and explosions  -- take on hybrid and ambiguous forms allowing stories to grow from viewers’ own interpretations.
