Sally Hewett graduated from the Kent Institute of Art and Design with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art in 2003. Since graduating, her work has been exhibited in the UK, USA, and Europe, and has been bought for private collections in the UK, USA, Israel, Australia, and Europe, and for public collections in the UK. Her work has also been featured in various books on the art of stitching and in magazines, both digital and printed, including Magazine des Beaux Art, Juxtapoz, Vogue Japan, and Dazed Digital, as well as on French TV and radio.
Hewett’s grandmother taught her to sew and embroider when she was a child, and she started using fabrics and embroidery in her work during the second stage of her degree. She is interested in how we see things and how we interpret what we see. Why are some bodies considered beautiful, and others ugly or disgusting? Hewett also wants to investigate how the media and techniques she uses might change how the content of the work is seen. Does using materials and techniques traditionally associated with prettiness and gentility change the response to the work?
