One of the artistic Salaman family, she was an artist in water-colour, mixed media, oils and linocut. She was born 15 June 1909 and went to Bedales School after her mother’s death from cancer, and then studied art at the Slade where she (and my mother) studied under Henry Tonks and later with Kathleen Brown and Marion Kratochvil. She had solo shows at the Goupil Gallery, Gainsborough House, Suffolk, the Ben Uri (twice), English Speaking Gallery, Oxford, the Annexe Gallery, Wimbledon, George Large Gallery, Redbourn, Sue Rankin Gallery, London and in mixed exhibitions. She was a member of the ‘East London Group’, about which a book was due to be published during 2011. Her portrait was painted by Edna Clark-Hall, another member of that earlier Slade cohort, and she died on 15 June 2001. She was married to the musician Robert Collet. You can find out more about her in the book written by her daughter, Jane Miller
