Martin is currently mainly working on landscapes, figure paintings from life, and printmaking. There is a common theme throughout his work which is based on draughtsmanship and creativity.
He has a passion for drawing and painting weathered countryside and coastal scenery outdoors; also rural crafts, traditional buildings, industrial archaeology and machinery, agriculture and fishing boats.
Many of these are fast disappearing, yet in some cases, such as with traction
engines, are being sympathetically restored.
His paintings, drawings and etchings explore a wide range of traditional and experimental techniques using a variety of media.
Martin’s background is that of an artist, illustrator and educationalist.
