A professional contemporary artist since 1980, Sally Ducrow was taught by other artists, and also by the materials themselves that she uses.  She began her artistic career as a painter and graphic artist in London and Australia, but soon turned her attention to collage and sculpture, particularly direct carving in wood and stone.  The inspiration for much of her work has been drawn from her travels around the world, and her long stays in Australia, Africa, Asia and Polynesia, where she had the opportunity to learn from local sculptors.  She has exhibited many times in England and the South of France, and her work figures in private collections in Europe, Australia and the United States.  Since 2005 she has been very active in the field of Land Art and Environmental Art, creating installations from mainly natural or repurposed materials, both for public events and private individuals.
