Cynthia Oswald Interviews Sally Richards

"Last week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Sally Richards, painter, printmaker, and mixed media artist who will be showcasing her work in the Chester County Studio Tour this May. Sally just recently won 1st place in the Wayne Arts Centers, Annual Regional Exhibition for her painting, Picnic Spot at Seal Cove, in April 2023. During this interview, we discuss her process and a sneak peek at what you will see during the Chester County Studio Tour!


'Instead of [the work being about] subject matter, it became about recreating those feelings of really authentic, full out expression, the love of discovery, solving problems … all the fun things. So I taught myself how to do that, and I don’t paint unless I’m in that space.'

'I think what’s interesting is people that have bought my work almost universally said about it that it’s that they find the work inspiring. And so when they’re with it, they find some kind of freedom or new energy, or a transformation of their space.'

Take a listen to our interview to learn about her work and her artistic process.
