Illustrations and prints by Adelaide artist/illustrator Sally Heinrich will be displayed in the Step by Step exhibition from 1 April to 9 May at Gallery 1855.
The exhibition will be launched on Friday 10 April, 6pm.
This exhibition showcases many of Sally’s illustrations from the children’s picture book, ‘One Step at a Time’, which is based on the true story of a baby elephant that had to get a prosthetic hip after stepping on a landmine on the Thai Burma border.
Sally exhibits linoprints, giclee prints and hand-drawn illustrations using water colour, lead pencil, pen ink and technical pens. She has been drawing for over 30 years as a professional artist.
Many of Heinrich’s works have previously been exhibited throughout Asia and Australia. She has illustrated more than 20 books, in addition to writing and illustrating her own picture books. Her work has been recognised by the Asialink Foundation, The May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust, Varuna-the Writer’s Centre and Arts SA.
Having previously lived in Darwin, Sydney, Singapore and Malaysia, Sally is currently based in Adelaide. She studied illustration at the University of South Australia.
On Saturday 2 May, Sally will host an illustration workshop for beginners at Gallery 1855. Anyone with an interest in illustration is welcome. The cost is $25 per person.
We hope you have a chance to see this stunning exhibition this autumn.
