Sally Jean does interesting work with her collages and image transfers. Her color schemes and her compositions create a vintage nostalgic flair with a touch of sentimentality on childhood dreams and memories. The way she includes certain words with her art pieces, creates a type of image (whether the same or different from the actual picture) in our minds because words and pictures together (or apart) can awaken emotions within from our pasts or present lives. For example, a piece of art can speak to someone in a different way than the way it does to the next who sees it. That's what makes art come alive.
