“Fabulous work. Martin evokes stunning atmosphere with really convincing shape, colour and tone. Terrific!”
I am constantly amazed at how every new painting becomes a voyage to discover the unique atmosphere and mood of a place. My aim is to capture light and ‘ambience’, rather than slavishly copying details from what is before me. I work from careful observation, sketches, photographs, memories and the painter’s greatest asset-informed imagination. My style ranges from very loose and impressionistic to a more figurative approach, as I feel the subject requires. A representative selection of my work is here.
I am a professional contemporary marine, landscape and abstract artist, working in acrylics mainly on hand-primed board and canvas. My work is in international collections in Australia, Spain, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Bermuda and New Zealand and elsewhere, as well as the UK and Channel Islands. Having been based in Jersey for some years many of my paintings depict the shores of that island, and having now moved to Kent my portfolio is expanding to also include works that reflect my new location.
