Originally from Surrey Martin has drawn and painted since childhood. His love of art and design in its many forms took him to High Wycombe where he studied design and later to Brunel university to complete an MA.
He practiced in the architectural and interior design sector for some years and then went on to teach design and visual communication, to degree level in UK and Eastern European universities, always inspired by the world around him, sketching and painting in his spare time.
Now living on the Shropshire/Welsh border, Martin in his retirement has been able to further explore and develop his painting particularly of landscapes.
“ The joy of applying paint to create an image is a wonderful feeling. At no moment in time does a landscape remain the same. Look away for a moment and the light and shade will change the tonal value of the view in seconds. I strive to capture the mood of that moment”
