Keith Salmon

Born in Essex in 1959 I moved with my family to Wales in the late 60’s.  I studied Fine Art at Shrewsbury and Falmouth Schools of Art between 1979 and 1983, before setting up a studio in Newcastle upon Tyne..

In 1989 I moved back to Wales to join my partner and together we set up a new studio.  Around this time my sight deteriorated very quickly and within a few years I had to stop exhibiting work and instead try to find new ways of painting using the very limited sight I now had.

We moved to Ayrshire in 1998 and although I was by this time registered blind, I had enough confidence in the new paintings and drawings to once again start exhibiting them.  I now have a studio space at Courtyard Studios in Irvine, exhibit my work regularly again and recently won the Jolomo Award 2009 for Scottish landscape painting.
