Sally Muir is based in Bath, UK and is a prodigious portrait painter. Her subjects include dogs, human portraits and landscapes, as well as the occasional rodent and bird. For years Ms. Muir focused on her knitwear business Muir & Osborne as both a designer and author. With partner Joanna Osborne, they have published seven knitting pattern books that include Pet Heaven, The Animal Accessory Bible, Best in Show, Knit Your Own Dog, (also Cat, Pet, Zoo, Farm and Dinosaur) and the children’s book Patch’s Grand Dog Show. Ms. Muir returned to university as a mature student with a concentration on Fine Art. Children’s portraits gave way to dog portraits as is evidenced in her 365 Facebook dogfest “A Dog A Day”. Ms. Muir is the recipient of many awards and her work appears regularly in galleries.
