Born of two very distant places, this painting combines my memory of riding a dangerous Andean mountain road with the feeling of wanting to stay safe when my country (the UK) was emerging (too fast for me) from its C-19 lockdown. In both cases I had to be courageous in choosing just how far I would go. The painting's energy is brave and adventurous. It tells us to be unafraid to set our own boundaries.
My intention is that 'Stop!' brings conscious choice (and the permission to say No!). SAL

SALchemy print sustainability
SALchemy prints care for the environment, in three ways:
1. The prints travel direct to you from theprintspace. Theprintspace is the UK’s only Fine Art & Photo printing service that is completely carbon neutral; recyclable packaging envelopes and cardboard stiffeners, paper tape made from 100% recycled fibres, and biodegradable bubble wrap all make a difference.
2. Hahnemühle Bamboo paper is the world’s first Fine Art inkjet paper made from 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton for resource-saving paper production. It doesn't contain optical brighteners, and is acid- and lignin-free.
3. A tree will be planted for each print sold. To achieve this, SALchemy.uk partners with OneTreePlanted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. SALchemy-funded trees will be planted in the Andes.
