About Sally

Sally McBride - The Letter Nest

Sally King McBride is a New York City-based artist and illustrator. She is a graduate of Brown University (B.A. in Art History), Columbia University (M.A. in Art History), and worked for over ten years at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her alphabets derive from a rich artistic vocabulary built over the course of these experiences; her motivation comes from two young sons still learning their ABCs!

“The Letter Nest” evokes the process of assembling a child’s name, branch by branch, letter by letter—unique in every case.
