My Life is Like a Movie (Sally Huss)


Sally Huss has been an artist all of her life. She was raised in Bakersfield, California where she took her first private oil painting lessons at the age of 10. She studied art at Occidental College, eventually graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in Fine Arts.

At the same time Sally (Sally Moore) was developing her art skills, she was developing her tennis skills. She became National Junior Champion, a member of the U.S. Wightman Cup Team and a Wimbledon semi-finalist. As an accomplished tennis player Sally taught her special brand of Zen tennis to celebrity clients such as Barbra Streisand, Joel Grey, Jill St. John, Marilyn Bergman, Helen Reddy, Larry Hagman, Jack Jones, Milos Forman, among others. After playing the Virginia Slims Women’s Tennis Tour against tennis greats such as Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, Sally became the head rackets pro at The Aspen Club in Colorado. There she hosted visiting celebrities, including Clint Eastwood, Merv Griffin, Ingmar Johansson and Rod Laver.

In the 1980′s with the help of her husband Marv, former head of advertising and promotion for Hallmark Cards, Sally returned to art and writing in a big way. Along with her own products — her gift art and original paintings — she branched out into licensing. Her designs and verse found their way into lines of greeting cards for American Greetings, plus collections of wallpaper, ceramics, mugs and even T-shirts. Now her art dances across thousands of products including clothing, purses, children’s books and even baby bibs. Her paintings and gift art brighten walls and uplift hearts in homes, office buildings, restaurants and hotels everywhere. One piece even graced the walls of the White House.

Today Sally Huss is considered one of the leading artists/designers in the country, in many cases combining her writing with her art. This has resulted in a number of books for children and THE HAPPY BOOK published by Ten Speed Press. Her most recent book, The Law of Attraction: HOW TO GET YOUR MAN — The Slam-Dunk Formula to Getting the Love of Your Life, is taking off in popularity as people recognize the wisdom it reveals in the light-hearted manner that it is presented.

This ability to combine writing and art has also taken her into newspaper syndication with King Features for her illustrated panel called “Happy Musings” that has appeared in such papers as The Detroit Free Press, The Orange County Register, The Desert Sun and others.

For years, as a speaker to women’s business and social groups, sports associations and charity gatherings, Sally has shared her happy and inspirational story. Always positive, fun and enlightening, her words empower and inspire those who hear her.

Sally is founder of Sally Huss, Inc., a 25 year-old California corporation, encompassing licensing, merchandising activities and syndication through King Features.
