Most of the wood Sally uses is from Mojorcan olive froves, while some is native to the Hampshire woodland.

Selling her wares at the Petersfield Makers’ Market, artist Sally Cantan was spotted by a representative of the Hampshire Artists’ Co-operative.

They invited her to exhibit at the Selborne Gallery as part of the gallery’s Winter Show.

The first ever public display of her work is on show now and runs until April.

Sally works in many media including metal, enamel and acrylic, all of which can be seen in the Selborne exhibition.

Having started her career as a marine biologist, Sally has always been intrigued by the colours and forms found in nature which inspire her work.

‘I love the random patterns and shapes that nature displays and I try to incorporate these elements into my work,’ she says.

n Find the Selbourne Gallery in The Plestor, Selborne. The Winter Show is a free exhibition, open 11am to 5pm from Tuesday to Sunday. Other works on display include ceramics, painting, drawing, enamelling, textiles, jewellery and glass. All are available for purchase.
