Bio: Born In Margate, England in 1960, Sally Trueman trained as a portrait painter under John Hughes-Hallett, official portraitist of Queen Elizabeth II. She financed her studies in alternative medicine by the sale of the paintings, and practised until 2000, when she moved to Toulouse in the south of France to paint full time. Her portrait work continued – including a painting of Zizou – French footballer Zinedine Zidane; and she launched herself into a series of oils and pastels on the theme of the sea and bathers. More recently she has concentrated on painting flowers, and has returned to Kent, England, and more to oil.
