DIRTY PRETTY FACES at Electric Eclectic

Are they scars or stitches? Clever - cosmetic surgery gone crazy - beautifully drawn. Thanks

Beautiful and moving
Kayla Jayne

Lovely but slightly disturbing at the same time. Great work.
Claire Rooney

Rather creative, imaginative, inspirational. More! More!
Shirley Cooper

Oh my Freaking God!...

Really loved your work yesterday at the identity parade. it was really nice to see there was something that stood out both visually and intelligently. Well done and good luck.

In the Flesh...

The canvas pieces are so much better in the flesh. I really am a fan of your work. I really like this exhibit (Enlaced & Entwined at The Identity Parade, 2007)

You have a wonderful collection of artworks which appeal to the art community and the general community alike

Wonderful Work

Already the proud owner of a Sally Butcher original painting, I am now saving up to commission a drawing!
What a talent.

Your Art

Your work is challenging to this male - it has great power in the way it addresses the unrecognised assumptions that men - no let's be honest - that I make about representations of women in my consciousness. I came away from a first viewing feeling ashamed of myself - and I think rightly so.

I then came back, having got over myself, and engaged with the skill and artistic expression. Wonderful.

All things considered

Better late than never...My favorite is the pieces from the All things considered i love the hands and the controlled use of color in some...Your subject matter speaks to women pretty pointedly.
Look forward to seeing more work!

Thank you very much for your amazing and inspiring art. I were right excited and moved by what it communicates like. Me too. I like 'Enlaced'. Me too. No bu' seriously it is rather special.

Dear Sally
Great website! Best of luck with it - especially as far as sales are

All good wishes
Simon Dentith


I think your work is incredible Sally! Your images have a beautiful, yet almost abject quality about them, which seems to reflect those tensions surrounding contemporary female body image. I also like the layout and design of your website. Will pass this on - good luck with it all!

Hi Sally, Jo emailed me the details of your site and I think it's excellent. Your work is fantastic. Good luck with everything.Jim.
Jim Leghorn

What a view!

Great site - really thoughtfully laid out. Like the way the front page is different each time I go in.

Have shown this to several colleagues - all of whom were very complementary. Hasn't translated into commissions yet, but you never know!

Art Website

Hey Sally B!
I love your site and your art! Was wondering what you have been getting up to : )

ps If I was rich I would commission you to paint a pic of me ; )
Becky Beeson

Art on Women

Hi Sally,
I particularly liked your drawing 'petal' I am a sucker for red and it rather amuses me that the pretty young woman (winslet?) has been snuffling up an Andrew Goldsworthy trail of petals in the wood.

Best wishes and goodluck with your career,
Kate Marshall

Feminine Exploration

First and foremost, congratulations in all of your accomplishments.

Your work conjures thoughts of the hardships females face with society's imposition of expected physical traits. Your eye for finite detail in your series "All Things Considered" enraptures and provokes viewers to question their definition of femininity while remaining visually stimulating. Quite similar to your "Lace Work" pieces in which femininity is exaggerated by the material begs the question, 'Are today's females perpetuating the materiality of their role by restraining themselves to societal norms?' I am eager to see what future works lie in wait and am encouraged that your artwork has entered the virtual world.

Hi Sally,

Wow! I had no idea you were this talented! I think your art speaks volumes about women, their bodies and their significance in our society. There seems to me to be a certain irony in the fact that your art itself is so beautiful and yet it portrays, in my eyes at least, a kind of suffering and forlornness. Good luck and thanks for sharing it.
