I am Sally Atkins of Sally's Shed a mixed media artist living and working in Lostwithiel. My work incorporates buildings and a sense of place, evoking memories of holidays, day trips out and family homes.
I have loved buildings forever... drawing them, building them in Lego and creating them out of card boxes as a child. Then at art college I realised that anything architectural interested me; doors, windows, shop fronts.... and especially buildings that had character and showed their heritage, be it a country cottage or an industrial warehouse. So it wasn’t too much of a leap to use my obsession in my creative business, so I started by painting houses and buildings onto reclaimed timber that my hubby found.
Since then I have expanded my work to become a mixed media artist working with other vintage and reclaimed items, however still with the core theme of buildings at the heart.
