ABOUT

Sally Butcher is an independent artist, lecturer and researcher based in Birmingham,UK.

Her artwork is underpinned by an interest in female subjectivity; through spaces, identities, bodies and desires. Her practice explores boundaries of gendered surfaces, particularly the movements between the natural and the cultural, body and image, inside and out.

Sally holds an MA Cultural Studies with Distinction from Lancaster University, a BA Fine Art with First Class Hons from Leeds University. She works as a part time lecturer at Birmingham Metropolitan College, leading the Foundation Diploma and teaching on the HND Fine Art.
