Artists Nook: Sally Gilchrist

Sally Gilchrist is a painter and printmaker inspired by forms in nature, the beauty and simplicity of silhouette, and the study of natural history.  Her series of linocuts are influenced by her experiences; the trips she takes, what she finds on her walks, and everyday objects we all use.
