Kadie Salmon is a visual artist based in London, UK. She graduated with an MFA from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009. Her practice utilises a variety of media, but she often uses photography at some stage in the creation of her work. Frequently she draws on notions of romance and eroticism, both historical and contemporary as a key concept of her work.
