Of course, I have invested in an amazing archival printer and pigment inks, and print Fine Art Giclee Prints from my studio in Sydney, Australia. HERE is the link to check out the selection available.
I certainly do, my art is available everywhere. I have collaborated with some great printing companies that print my art in the UK, USA, NZ, Poland, Germany. Check out my SHOP to find your closest stockist.
No, please don’t…as a living, breathing, working artist my art is globally copyrighted to me the artist, Sally Walsh / Sillier Than Sally.
It is also how I make a living, and is not available for copying in any way.
Of course you can =) I love that my art inspires people and I love that my online and in-person art classes help grow so many peoples love for art & their art skills. But please remember if you are pulling “inspiration” from another persons art (mine included) it should just be a SPARK of that other persons work. Not a copy. It should look like your work first not a version of someone else's.
No, you cannot. As copying is copying. If you have taken one of my art classes, you can of course copy the art piece used for that lesson. But my larger collection of art is copyrighted to me the artist, please respect that.
I use my favourite watercolour paints (in the whole wide world) Daniel Smith Watercolour Paints. They are magnificent paints but be warned they are on the pricey side, but worth it if you really want to go down the watercolour path. A few of my fave colours are: Quin Deep Gold, Sodalite Genuine and Serpentine Green.
I use Arches Cold Pressed watercolour paper, 300gsm with a medium tooth. and I use two paint brushes, a thin & long rigger brush, size 2 (most watercolour brush brands sell these) and I use a round size 10 brush by a company called Neef.
Thank you so much for thinking of me, but at the moment I cannot. My days are bursting full with running my little art biz and taking care of my young kids that I don’t even get enough time some weeks to paint! So time does not allow me to mentor or coach anyone else.
I do so wish you luck on your creative journey though, and don't forget I have in-person and online art classes that might help you.
Yes there is =) Postage is $10 anywhere around Australia, but is free if you buy a few prints and the purchase goes over $100.
No, not at the moment. There is a special $5 flat rate (or free over $100) for all in the local area code of my studio - 2233. So it makes it super cheap to get your prints delivered straight to you.
As I collaborate with so many amazing companies around the world, my art products and a huge range of prints are sent to your address from their companies. I can't control their shipping.
For a few reasons:
1: I have international print houses that you can purchase prints from, check out my SHOP for your closest.
2: International postage is ridiculously expensive at the moment, closer to you, ends up making it more affordable for you for postage.
3: Packaging and posting internationally is a full time job, and to be able to still have time to still paint (I am an artist after all), I have to limit my Sydney studio prints to Australia for now.
4: I also have licensing contracts in place internationally, and I want to honour them and send local clients to them =)
We print and package over the week at our studio (quality prints take time), and post usually once a week on Thursdays.
Our Giclee prints are not normal run of the mill prints AT ALL - they are beautiful high quality prints. Printed with archival pigment ink on Canon, 360gsm mottled cotton archival rag. They look like originals and will last a lifetime!
Sadly at the moment I cannot. I wish I was able to help each person, charity, business and organisation that reaches out to me. But alas, I get hundreds of requests a year for free original art, prints, products and services, from people and organisations locally and around the world…. as a working mum, with two hands and a tiny art business I can of course, not sustain so many requests!
My little art business has been crippled in the past from trying my best to keep up with creating so much free work (as I so much want to be able to help wherever I can), but it was to a point where I could no longer pay for the basics - like art supplies, food, my children’s epic medical bills, day care fees, etc.
Plus to be honest, over time it also had a severe effect on my mental health, wellbeing and my husband threatened divorce (well, close to) if I continued working 50 hour weeks and making $50 bucks. So I can no longer say yes to such requests. My deepest apologies!
Charities I am currently championing:
“One Tree Planted” - In the works of connecting with this organisation to have a tree planted in Australia each time a purchase is made from my Sydney Studio Print House.
“Art In Africa” - From spending extensive time in Africa, I am now working on a dream to in the future, help bring some sustainable art practices & solid art careers to some small villages, in some areas I have travelled through in Africa, to help the girls in these villages champion their own art, build their art business skills, mindsets and unique styles, and utilise their amazing landscape & settings. To fund an art supplies chain and to help teach these girls to sell quality & unique art to their local tourism network. Help them create a sustainable & enjoyable art business, that brings in solid revenue for themselves and their families and in doing so helps boost their villages economy and community.
Girls sitting in their power and strength - can save the world!
As a matter of fact, I do =) I am slowly taking over the walls of Australia with delightful prints. So if you have a darling brick n mortar store and you think some Sillier Than Sally Art Prints (A4 or A3 size) would suit your customers, Please shoot me an email over at email@example.com to chat.
