Artist in acrylic on canvas and mixed media on paper, born in Sussex. In 1977 she graduated from Bristol Polytechnic faculty of art and design, then was a research student at Kyoto City University of Arts, Japan, under a Leverhulme Scholarship, 1979–81. From 1981–5 she lived in Japan, returning to London in 1985, when she won a Greater London Arts Award. For the next decade Salter’s abstract work was “involved with the attempt to capture stillness in movement … a stillness with potential, not a passive quiet.” Her pictures employed “the quiet anchor of the grid to give a freedom and independence to the fragmented lines.” Salter took part in numerous group exhibitions in Britain, Japan and elsewhere overseas, including Rijeka Drawing Biennale, Yugoslavia, 1982; World Print Council IV, San Francisco, 1983, purchase prize; Chicago International Art Exposition, from 1987; LG, 1990; and Salama-Caro Gallery, 1993.
