Sally Nixon is an illustrator in Little Rock. The Pine Bluff native earned a BFA in Illustration from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.  She self-published “The Inevitability of Spiders and Flies” and her work has been featured in numerous publications. Nixon recently completed a project in which she created an original illustration each day for 365 consecutive days.

Nixon’s subjects are typically young women. “They don’t have perfect bodies or perfect habits and that makes them relatable,” she explains. “The scenes I create around them are everyday places: a bathroom, a restaurant, a messy bedroom. However, my goal with each drawing is to elevate the seemingly mundane to something special.”

Exhibition continues in the Second Floor Gallery through September 4, 2016.
