About the artist
In 2022, Sally Dunbar completed her degree in print-media and drawing from the Australian National University. Subsequently, she relocated back to Canberra, Australia, where she currently resides and works.
During her time in Japan, Sally was captivated by Japanese Woodblock Prints and Wagara, which focus on utilizing design and pattern in printmaking. She draws inspiration from the use of repeated motifs to create structure, rhythm, and order in her own work. Sally seamlessly intertwines human stories with these foundational elements by exploring everyday human interactions and scenes.
