Expressive impressionism is an accurate description of self-taught artist, Sallé Kirby. Painter, printmaker, photographer, and multi-media are the vessels used in illustrating her work. Her muse of inspiration is human figures and nature while her work is an explosive of layering of vibrant, bold, and intense color. Her work has been exhibited and sold in galleries in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. She has been a featured artist in the Coachella Valley Weekly, The Standard Magazine, and The Chaparral Newspaper.
