Sally West is a contemporary Australian artist whose work is widely coveted and I am very excited to release this new catalogue of works from the Beach Series.

2-4 Ft SSE – Beach North Bondi (26.8.20) – Plein Air

Her application of the paint is incredibly thick which creates an interesting textural surface. She works with a muted palette and bold application of the paint which often spills over the edge of the canvas. Sally West’s most recent body of work from her beach series was painted inspired by and often created at various Australian beaches including Terrigal, Avoca, Freshwater, Manly, Coogee, Maroubra, Bondi, Camp Cove, Blueys, Lizzie & North Curl Curl (NSW).

3-4 Foot Cross Offshore – Beach Blueys (18.12.20) Plein Air

Trailing SSE Swell Beach Coogee Study 1 (4.2.21) Plein Air


Due to the 2021 Covid-19 restrictions imposed on NSW residents, Sally West has been limited for travel. Several new locations have been explored within the arears she was permitted to work plein air, including Newport, Narrabeen, Freshwater View Reserve and more. Works from this time will be available early 2022 when dry enough for exhibition and preview catalogues are available now.

Contact me via email: [email protected] and I will send you through a preview catalogue. Here are a few of my favourites below too.
