Atlanta born artist Sally King Benedict first caught my eye in Elle Decor's December issue, where her artwork was featured in the home of designer Ashley Stark.
A self-described "total rennaisance art history dork", she finds her inspiration in fashion, textiles, travel, and from the likes of artists such as William de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, and Philip Guston just to name a few.
|Her artwork has a bold, modern aesthetic, yet also has a softness and femininity to it, which I love.|
|Coming from a home of artists, I've always wanted to learn how to paint. Taking just one look at Sally's beautiful body of work convinces me that I need to take the plunge.|
|This is one of my absolute favorites. I love the pastel hues, and slightly subdued lines.|
|I've decided that I want them all. Perhaps one day I will be the proud owner of one of her masterpieces.|
