Having met at Art school, Bishopston based ‘emerging artists’ Sally Coulden and Jane Speedy have taken the leap into their new careers as professional artists. 

Jane and Sally have both embraced change and new challenges throughout their working lives, which for both of them has been about grasping life’s opportunities as they arise. Their careers cover everything from teaching, midwifery, published writer, sexologist and working globally for major corporates. 

Really excited at the new challenges that they face, Jane and Sally are immersing themselves into the world of art and the challenges this brings by holding their first exhibition, Emergence.

Jane’s work is influenced by the landscapes she inhabits and the layers of human stories and meanings that lie just beneath the surfaces of those landscapes: in her case in Bristol and West Wales.

Sally’s work is instinctively abstract, her aim, to remove complexity, detail and feelings of containment to create a sense of visual space and freedom. 

Come and meet the artists at Centrespace Gallery, 6 Leonards Lane, Bristol, BS1 1EA. Opening night is Friday 15 December, 5pm-9pm. The exhibition is open on Saturday 16 - Sunday 17 December, from 11am - 6pm daily. For more see websites: sallycoulden.art and janespeedyart.com
