Michael Salt’s work on exhibition at Staithes Gallery

Michael Salt was born in Stourbridge in 1955. He studied at the Stourbridge School of Art and after graduation left to work as a Studio Technician spending time in Wales and Jersey. He returned to the Midlands to concentrate on his painting, working with a variety of media but principally oils.

In his landscapes Michael strives to capture the mood and light of the English countryside he loves. He particularly enjoys painting water and visits Staithes and the surrounding area several times a year to gain inspiration from the dramatic North Sea and the becks and rivers of North Yorkshire.
