Sally Anne was the president of her high school Art Club and went on to study watercolor with Dan Peterson at Yosemite College, then oil painting at CSU Fresno. During her third year, she changed majors completing a degree in equine science following her love of horses and a dream of becoming a horse trainer. After university, she worked for cutting horse trainers, taught equine sciences at Cal Poly San Luis Obisbo then settled in a career as a livestock feed formulator. After having her daughter, she turned to full-time painting, eventually opening a studio in downtown Sonora, though she credits most of her artistic development to plein air workshops, and individual instruction with painters Frank Serrano, Jim McVicker, Kathleen Dunphy Suzie Baker, and Charles Waldman.
