About The Artist

The roots of my creativity are in Africa. The people, the vegetation and multifaceted landscapes of Zimbabwe were to me vividly bright and beautiful.

I moved to the UK in 2003, with one year away (2003-2004), accepting a visiting student opportunity in Jerusalem, Israel. I was based in Wimbledon up until 2009 and then moved to Surrey and now live in Kent. I have relished the cultural richness that is here and the beauty of the English countryside.

I look back at my mentors with gratitude. Beginning at primary boarding school, I remember with thanks the artist and teacher, Jean Peterson, who started an art club. My very first exhibition entry was done through her. From then on I thought of myself as an artist.

Estelle Byrne was my inspiring and gifted art teacher at secondary school. I notice on the Queen Elizabeth School Facebook page, she is often mentioned with affection. Her classes were the highlight of my week.

I mostly work in acrylic and watercolour. When I work from nature I prefer close up views, making the play of light the main ingredient. I am aware that I am drawing inspiration from my own story behind the subject, the ongoing script of everything observed.

I love the human form and face. I look for subtle expressions that reveal personality, the story behind the eyes.

Awards / Exhibitions / Career

I studied at the School of Art at the Bulawayo Technical College. Under Adele Walters I discovered and developed my strength in life drawing and received the college’s Fine Art Award (1969). That same year, a class outing to the park to paint outdoors initiated my love for watercolours.

I went on to a long career in Harare, mostly within the textile industry. I took on painting commissions, sold my work through commissions, solo and joint exhibitions and in small local galleries. It’s a lovely thought that my work is all over the world in people’s homes.

In Zimbabwe I worked only in watercolour, and my subjects were predominately floral and landscape (see Bush Sunrise). Here in the UK, I have taken on private commissions and I have sold work at the Corner Gallery, Carlshalton (see Hydrangea Profusion) and through the studio of Jane Silk, the ceramicist (see Ornamental Orange Tree and Higginson Park).

I am exhibiting at Sixteen Gallery, Cheltenham in March 2022.

I’ve had exciting experiences as a mature student. I lived in Sweden for four years to study (BA European History) and during that time took 3 courses in Western Humanities under Dr. Torbjorn Aaronson, PhD Political Science, Uppsala (2002). As a visiting student for one year, I studied Jewish Art in Late Antiquity at the Hebrew University, Rothberg School, under Professor Lee I. Levine (2003-2004). I now live in Kent.

About The Artist

I am a landscape artist based in New Haw, Weybridge, Surrey.

I have always had a passion for painting and gained a Diploma in Art at a London University College of Education.

For many years, I have divided my time between my art, my teaching and our family publishing business, Guinea Pig Education, which sells educational material around the world.

Sally Anne Wake Jones - New Haw, Weybridge Artist Landscape Painting En Plein Air

My recent acrylic paintings tell stories inspired by my dog walks. I love to connect with nature. I immerse myself in the fabric of a place - the changing seasons, the cloud formations, the cycle of life and decay - keeping a visual notebook. I set out to capture these impressions, painting large spontaneous statements.

Where possible, I like to work on canvases, en plein air and with my husband, Peter, we have created a unique collection of paintings, portraying the historic parkland of Windsor Great Park, in varying moods throughout the seasons.

We frequently visit the South of France and the intense light of that region has influenced my bold use of colour and the scintillating light effects seen in my work.
