About

As your gaze lingers on one of Sally K’s paintings, you notice how Sally’s brush strokes add playfulness and life to the canvas, incorporating unexpected images and shapes of flowers, or abstract color combinations to convey the vibrant beauty of a woman’s hair.

Sally K was born in Ohio following her family’s emigration from Lebanon. Shortly after her birth, her family moved to Saudi Arabia, where she stayed until she was 14. Sally then attended high school and college in Beirut, where she graduated with a BA in Fine Arts with distinction from the Lebanese American University of Beirut. In 2013, Sally and her family moved back to the United States and she now works out of her studio in California.

This unique 58 inch high by 52 inch wide painting is an acrylic paint composition on a gold leaf covered canvas. It is stretched, wired and ready to hang. This floral figurative artwork is signed by the artist on the front of the artwork. The sides are a continuation of the painting and it does not require framing. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable U.S. and global shipping options available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

The focus of Sally’s portraits is contemporary women. Her style merges characteristics of abstract expressionism with realism and portrait painting to convey, not just the beauty of women, but their confidence and strength as well. They are women that are alluring, flirtatious, and demure, with a femininity that Sally imbues with what she describes as the “sensuality, independence, and confidence you see in strong women.”

Sally’s portraits of women are intensely personal. “The woman I paint are an extension of me, of what I feel, how I process my surroundings, my thoughts, my angers, my pleasures. They’re the confident strong women that I strive to be. Sometimes tough and daring, sometimes shy and reserved, but always self-assured and determined; they represent what captivates me in other woman; the qualities I admire, and strengths that I strive to gain.”

Sally draws inspiration from photography, pop culture and fashion as well as artists ranging from Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock to Gustav Klimt. Her highly regarded paintings have been featured in group and solo shows in Beirut, Dubai, Italy, and the USA.
