Her paintings’ magnetic pull, intensity and energy have caused viewers to comment that the paintings are alive.
“Visual artist Sally Tsou’s accomplished technique and style make viewing her art work an extremely pleasurable experience. She transforms commonplace subjects like (surroundings) in an electrifying manner so that the interpretations resonate with a primal raw energy. Her artwork is at one and the same time charged with transpersonal yet familiar vision. Her solo show contains several types of artwork from sculpture to oil painting reflecting her versatile, varied style. A major theme in her artwork is the glory of transcendence from the here and now, in all its vibrancy and subtlety. Their beauty is derived from their lyrical communication of mysterious deeply felt vistas which nurture the spirit and soul."

Sally Tsou was born in Shang Hai, China and grew up from the colorful cosmopolitan yet primitive island of Taiwan providing her a highly stimulating visual environment and upbringing.
She spent part of her adolescence in the Philippines. The fecund greenery of these populated islands lends an unusual mix of the primitive raw energy and the sophistication to Ms. Tsou’s work.
Ms. Tsou’s arrival in the US at the age of 18 marked her first experience with seasonal variations and cultural diversity. Since then her work began to reflect the many and varied threads of her life experiences. She has shown in art exhibitions and art fairs nationally and internationally and has won many awards.
She increased her studio skill through fine art study at University of Maryland, Mary Mount University, and earning degrees from American University and George Washington University. Ms. Tsou has been teaching visual arts for more than 10 years in high school, middle school and currently at Fillmore Arts Center. She also provides art and short story writing classes for adults.
