Stoneman is a multi disciplinary artist working in Wolftrap Studio at the farm in Maranup, Western Australia.
The concept of environmental fragility is a conscious consideration in Sally’s art practise. She endeavours to evoke literal and metaphorical symbols of the Australian landscape and cultural heritage through the use of materiality. The Recycled ‘rabbit proof fence’ from the wheatbelt and Murchison regions of W.A. form the basis of many of her large sculptural works. She also works with recycled copper wire to create smaller forms that emulate the natural environment.
She received the W.A. Sculptor Scholarship at Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe in 2018 for her sculpture ‘Seed’, which is now part of The City of Melville Art collection situated at Piney Lakes Sculptural Walk.
Kings Park Botanical Gardens commissioned an Ephemeral Artwork for the 2017 Wildflower Festival. The work titled ‘Woven Wildernest’ is situated in the heart of the gardens. It consists of a large (6m)nest with a wildflower egg (2×1.5m). The Artwork pays homage to the Kwongan region of Western Australia being a global biodiversity hotspot.
Schwenkies Dam in Greenbushes is the location of another commission titled ‘Nest’ 2018 which is situated in the dam on a large tree trunk.
Stoneman has exhibited many times in Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe and Bondi. Her paintings are exhibited frequently in W.A. and she is in nationally and international collections.
It’s a long time since we last spoke.
Ana and i were at the Sculptures by the Sea today and were loving your offerings, not realising until now we’re home on the internet that they are yours.
They are exquisite. Thank you!

I have just seen your sculpture by the sea in Cottlesloe and I am absolutely in love with it. So in love with the details, that I am using it in my assignment for my art unit. I really hope that I am able to capture the meaning of your sculpture well. Would you be able to share the key messages in your sculpture ‘seed’?
