Cally was trained as an Architectural Designer completing her course in 1982. She worked within an architectural environment on jobs as diverse as shops, banks and even an oil rig. Post having her children she worked almost exclusively for private clients designing living solutions.
Space, scale, design, texture and light has been an integral part of her working life. Her paintings reflect a passion for the slightly obscure, more an interpretation, the essence of objects, rather than a depiction of reality.
