Born in Seattle, Washington, Sally Hewitt's roots reach deep into the Pacific Northwest. She graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in English literature and later obtained a degree in fine arts/painting from Western Washington University.
Before beginning her career in art, Sally taught skiing and tennis, worked as a flight attendant, and managed a catfish farm in California. It was at the catfish farm where she began drawing catfish for signs and progressed to painting the abundant wildlife she observed there.
For many years, the National Audubon Society published her wildlife drawings, as did the Seattle Audubon Society, North Cascades Audubon Society, and the Seattle Mountaineers. Over the years her art has been published in many books and newsletters and has been widely exhibited in the Pacific Northwest.
Sally's current paintings are an expression of form, color, and space, and have been influenced by private tutelage under Lloyd Blakley and the late William Freinik.
