Sally Gilford

Specialising in printed textiles, Sally creates vibrant designs inspired by nature and science.

Currently working with researchers from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Matrix Research, she explores artsci connections, creating original responses to images of scientific research.

She incorporates digital and hand screen printed process into her work, a selection of which are available on her online shop.  She also accepts commissions and is interested to hear about ideas for collaborations.

Through her work as an arts practitioner and producer, Sally facilitates the exploration of multi disciplinary art forms to encourage self-expression; creative experimentation and process lead artistic collaboration.  She has worked as a socially engaged practitioner for 10 years across a diverse range of organisations.

Sally is also a part of >thread{ } collective.  They create generative artwork that subverts and connects textile heritage using analogue and digital processes. Working with code and human bio data, they produce digital imagery, which is interpreted through print and surface pattern.

Her studio is based at Islington Mill Studios in Salford where she also co-founded screen print specialists One69A in 2009 and most recently, Salford Makers CiC.
