Sally Ladd Cole


Having always lived in rural New Hampshire, I observe with great concern the ever dwindling fields, farms, marshes and forests that I grew up loving and taking for granted.

Through my paintings I hope to bring awareness to the irreplaceable beauty of this rural country and open Atlantic shoreline. These everyday scenes of marshes, meadows, forests and farmland, so filled with sun and shadow, color, powerful contrasts and overall natural grace that I find so much inspiration in, are becoming increasingly rare.

Sally graduated with a BA in Fine Art from the University of New Hampshire in 1971.
She then went on to study with Clifford Smith.
