~Children on the Beach

.
.
Sally Swatland was born on September 20th, 1946
in Washington, D.C. She grew up in a family that
appreciated the arts; her grandmother was a concert
violinist, her aunt was a talented artist, and her mother
played piano and sang in several choirs.
Drawing was second nature to Sally, and she began
painting when she was just five years old.
Sally Swatland had two sisters who were also encouraged
to study drawing, painting, and anything that
developed creative expression.
Most of Sally Swatland Paintings are focus on children
on beach in impressionism style. In the
early 1970s, Sally approached her local Saks Fifth Avenue
store to inquire about their exhibition space.
She was granted her first show, where she exhibited
a group of flower, landscape and figure paintings.
The results were positive ¨C she sold many
of the works on display.
