From an early age, Martin cultivated his artistic talents. He has been a sculptor, wood carver and painter. His love of sculpting shines through to his current work, which he terms “sculpting with paint”. Martin’s avid love of all things in nature and the great outdoors is displayed in his vivid nature landscapes, trees and animals.
Martin’s work is highly textured; it literally pops off his canvases. He builds each painting layer upon layer, until he has achieved optimal color and deep texture. Martin takes pride in his unique and personal style of art. He is devoted to bringing the personal traits of each of his subjects to life in a crisp, stylized manner. The perfect balance of motion and calm in his work, as well as the intense combinations of color keep both collectors and critics in awe. With the boundless sea of colors and the everlasting movement of life as his driving forces, Martin’s art will continue to grow, change and inspire in a style all his own.
Martin has been working professionally as an artist since July 2013. Prior to pursuing his passion for art, he worked as a Surgical Assistant in Orthopedic Surgery. Although his day job centered around surgery, he couldn’t shake his inner drive to create and spent many of his work free hours creating art at home. Since deciding to pursue his art professionally he hasn’t looked back. Although he misses the pleasure of helping make people whole again, he feels that his art has taken that drive to a new level.
Martin would like to extend his heartfelt gratitude to those who assisted in forming his artistic career, namely his high school art teacher Rebecca Quain and his college drawing professor Todd Mitchell, from these Martin received the fundamentals of creativity and design; to his wonderful patrons who continue to drive him to new levels of expertise; and most importantly to his lovely wife and children, who continue to be a source of unending support and inspiration.
