Originally from the Staffordshire Moorlands, Michael J Salt BA (Hons) worked in design and advertising as an art director and illustrator but now concentrates more time on painting professionally. He is a Past President of the Northampton Town&County Art Society (2012 – 2013).
He works in oil, acrylic, watercolour, pastel and in fact enjoys mixing media to achieve texture and tone. His subject matter is varied – from dark brooding moorland landscapes to strong and sensitive portraiture.
He has shown work in London, Northamptonshire and throughout the Pennines and accepts and enjoys both landscape and portrait commissions.
