Salem Cade grew up in the southern U.S. and was artistically inspired by the nature surrounding her. She taught herself how to draw and paint animals in elementary school and was privately trained in Fine Art through high school. Salem then moved to Orange County to study at Laguna College of Art & Design, where she received her MFA in 2011.
While at LCAD, Salem discovered her passion for teaching and began instructing at the college level. After five years as an Associate Professor, she left to start Daisy Painting- a studio that provides classical fine art training for children and adults. She enjoys teaching people of all ages and abilities, equipping them with skills to take their art-making to the next level.
Salem’s figurative representational oil paintings are shown in galleries in Orange County and Los Angeles. She continues to express her love of animals through Daisy Pet Paintings, where owners can commission oil paintings of their special pets.
