From Inspiration To Reality with Megan Salmon - Artist Influence


What artists have inspired you along your journey?
"This is always changing, I have been looking at other artists since I was a teenager. What most comes to mind are the periods such as the German Expressionists with artists such as Max Beckmann, Abstract Expressionists like Mark Rothko and Lee Krasner."
- Megan Salmon

'The Lady of Shalott' by John Williams Waterhouse 1888


Pre Raphaelite Period

"The pre raphaelite period is a huge inspiration for me. I love looking at artists like Millais, Rossetti and Holman Hunt."
"Art is the biggest inspiration to me. At the beginning of each season when I create a collection I always turn to what I love which is art and culture."
