  • If you wish to license Sally's art for printed or other published works, please use the contact form below or send an email to obtain permission. I've had my art used by organizations to represent spiritual, uplifting and diversity-inclusive concepts, and I'm especially receptive to licensing my art for these types of uses.

  • Image rights holders have a legal right to remove their images from any website that has published a copyrighted image without permission, including Pinterest and other image sharing sites.  And we have good reason to do this because stealing occurs via scraping, copying and hot linking, and it can spin out of control very quickly.  When this happens, it causes an artists work to appear to be in the public domain, and then the infringements can proliferate like wildfire.

  • If you have had a "pin" removed from Pinterest, it's because I've had that image removed from the site for infringements. Pinterest will send you a copyright notification even if you innocently repinned that image.

  • I work hard to protect my copyrights.
  • Copyright infringement is not a victimless crime.  It devalues the art and robs the artist of valuable time and especially of inspiration, because every new creation will require countless future unpaid hours of work to keep the thievery even a little bit under control.

  • If you see Sally's art being "sold" anywhere other than on or Pixels/, then know it is likely fraud.  There are many fraudulent and unscrupulous websites today that can steal buyers credit cards, personal info and/or spread malware.  Some of them just want to get advertising clicks at the artists and customers expense.  Many fraudulent websites use art to entice their victims to click.  Search engines do not make it easy for creative people to clean up the search results to exclude fraudulent websites that are stealing our images, therefore search results can be rife with fraud.  It's depressing and it's also impossible to keep up with.

  • ... so be careful where you click.

  • For teachers especially, please educate your students that copying a copyrighted image is allowed in the privacy of your home, but if this unauthorized copy gets posted on the internet or on any other public venue, it becomes infringement.  Always ask for permission first please, for any living artist.  If your students become artists when they grow up, do you think they will want to have a voice in how their images get used all around the planet?
