Keith Salmon

Scottish landscape painter Keith Salmon is patron to the gallery and winner of the 2009 Jolomo Prize. He specialises in Scottish landscapes, using acrylics and pastel as well as creating pen and pencil drawings.

I was born in Essex in 1959 and 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 where I worked for the next few years.

In 1989 I moved back to Wales to join my partner and together we set up a new studio. Around this time I was diagnosed as having diabetic retinopathy. 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 just the very limited sight I now had left. I´m now registered blind.
