Are you stuck for the perfect present for Mum this Mother’s Day? Here at Women UK, we’ve been lucky enough to work with New Forest based artist Sally Mackness, who has kindly donated one of her bespoke stunning paintings to give away as a special treat.
Sally has a heart warming human interesting story to tell that will resonate with many of us. Originally from a corporate marketing background, this is a summary of Sally’s story so far….
Just 7 months ago, Sally was motivated to pick up a paintbrush after watching an inspiring TV programme all about The Royal Academy of Arts. She started out painting sunsets and stormy scenes in her home based studio. After a while, Sally then channelled her inner Van Gogh and started to paint flowers – roses, poppies, daffodils and iris. Using the power of social media and her marketing skills, Sally has now sold over three hundred pieces of art in the past 3 months. Customers include the Editors of Cosmopolitan and Huffington Post.
But the story doesn’t stop there! To top it all, at the start of February, Sally was exhibiting in her local pub when she was contacted to submit her work for a prestigious New York art exhibition. This has led to Sally now undertaking regular visits to New York, where she is witnessing a growing base of international and UK Clients.
Here at Women UK, we’ve got a fabulous painting to give away. This artwork is called Rose, valued at £150.
In order to be in with a chance of winning this fabulous painting, simply send us an email to Win@WomenUK.co.uk to let us know why your Mum is the best mum in the world. We’ll be choosing our favourite on Thursday 3rd March and the winner will be notified by email.
