About Sally Kimp
June 28, 1940 ~ August 7, 2018 (age 78)
Sally Kimp a self-taught sculptor. Her early years were spent in the Pacific Northwest. Born in a log cabin in Idaho's panhandle country, her love of the outdoors and the simple beauty of nature is reflected in the smooth, flowing lines of her art. Moving with her family to Washington State, California, and back to Idaho, Sally spent her youth sketching and painting. It was after taking a night school pottery class that Sally found her medium in clay. A love of Native American culture brought Sally to Arizona in 1987 where her stoneware fired clay sculptures of the Navajo and Hopi people, as well as bronze sculptures, have gained her critical acclaim. The simple form of her work and sympathetic portrayal of the subject matter with emphasis on the inner spirit, have led to several one-woman shows. Sally's work can be found in private collections nationally and internationally.
