Sally Simpson grew up by the sea in and now lives on a small farm outside of Canberra. She began her studies at the South Australian School of Art in 1982, graduating at the College of Fine Arts, Sydney and completed a Master of Philosophy in Sculpture at ANU School of Art in 2012. Simpson’s artworks are recordings of the interaction of humans and the land at a particular point in time as if for a future museum.
