Artist: Sallie Hodges


Artist Statement: Oddity, born into a British conservative rural farming family. Left school at 15 with noqualifications, expectations were simple, work, get married and have kids. Instead, I flirted withdrugs, questioned every boundary and escaped. Ambition, being queer, and having an enquiringmind led me to the University of Westminster, London where I gained an upper second class BAhonours degree in 'Film Video & Photographic Arts’.


In 1992 I started working on feature films in various stages of production, and in 93 I was hired byMiramax Films where I worked for ten years in London and then Los Angeles.


2004 saw the dawn of a new era when I moved to Moab, Utah. This is where my creativerehabilitation began.


Photography is, and always will be my passion. Film and story telling is my love, and I recentlycompleted a feature length documentary.
