Art Deco Craftwork – Tapestry Cushions, Hand-Painted Boxes, Brooches & Beads
Sally Southcombe came to Australia from New Zealand in 1959 but it was not until 1987 when she attended an evening class in calligraphy at Waverley Woollahra Art School that she became interested in drawing and painting.
Sally belonged to the Clarice Cliff Collectors Club in England where the club held a yearly festive weekend in the potteries area. She was asked to paint articles in the art deco Clarice Cliff designs for exhibition and sale. She painted small boxes, brooches, doorstops etc.; and now makes tapestry cushions and painted beads.
Sally is a member of Randwick Art Society and attends Waverley Seniors Art Group. She has entered paintings in the Rotary Lyne Park Art exhibition, won a prize in the ‘Better Book Covers’ Competition at the Randwick Literary Institute Annual Arts Festival and has exhibited at the Waverley Library.
