Sally Booth, Artist

"Booth works on semi-transparent materials, which she says reflects her own sight: “Because I’m visually impaired I see things a bit soft and out of focus. I use a lot of line drawing and simple shapes because I don’t see the detail. I found this method echoed my vision in some way. “For me it’s like that all the time but it’s quite beautiful. On the one hand it makes things more difficult but at the same time there’s a softness to it.”
