Sally Shovar Byers is a visual artist and teaching artist living in Moultrie, Georgia. She has worked as an independent artist since 1985. Her studio work focuses on portraits and still life. For creative balance she makes abstract paintings. At public events, she "performs" her art by sketching participants and describing the creative process. SHOVAR received her BA in Art History and Art from Humbolt State University, California, in 1978. She has exhibited at arts centers throughout the state. She has lived in seven countries and traveled widely.
Sally is famous in Southwest Georgia for her blue hair and portrait drawing skills, and she is leaving a legacy to all the children in local schools who will forever think you have to have blue hair to qualify as a real artist.
