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 had.

We moved to Ayrshire in 1998 and although I was by this time registered as blind, I had enough confidence in the new paintings and drawings to once again start exhibiting them. I now work professionally from my studio at Courtyard Studios in Irvine, exhibit my work widely again and won the prestigious Jolomo Award 2009 for Scottish landscape painting. In 2010 I was offered the Speyer International Arts Scholarship and spent four months living and working in the historic city of Speyer in southern Germany.

I spent the last two years developing my work and am now seeking new exhibition opportunities.
