Fire & Flower is a series of works based on Sally’s love for the boundless, sacred and diverse Australian landscape. Australia is host to some of the most resilient bushland environments and flora in the world. Fire & Flower focuses on drawing parallels between the process of natural regeneration the propensity and power to recover and thrive after fire and trauma – and the greater human experience of healing and growth.
