Cally was born in Kendal and moved to the family dairy farm at Burton-in-Kendal from her parents' farm at Burton-in-Lonsdale in 1993.
She is a member of Green Door Artists and exhibits regularly throughout the South Lakes. This Summer she held her first solo exhibition at Low Sizergh Barn.
She is inspired by her rural surroundings and particularly enjoys painting farm animals and wildlife. She works mostly in ink and watercolour and uses a variety of home-made dip pens to create the drawings before adding the watercolour washes. She prefers a loose wet-in-wet style and likes to experiment in a variety of media. With a loose and expressive style, her most recent works have become progressively more abstract.
She welcomes visitors to her home studio to discuss her work and accepts commissions (mostly of gun-dogs and horses).
