Martin was raised in Shirebrook, a coal mining village in NE Derbys, and developed his love of art at an early age. He is almost wholly self-trained, his only formal qualification being an Art “O” level from his schooldays. Even so he has sold work to private collectors around the world and secured coveted gallery space in London and in local Derbyshire galleries. Like many artists he came to professional art late. After University (Birmingham-an honours degree in Economics) he had a brief spell in finance before joining the Fire & Rescue Service in Derbyshire in 1977. Although he never really stopped painting he only committed himself fully to his art in 2008 after leaving the Service. Mainly an artist in oils Martin’s output is wide-ranging and covers landscapes and urban scenes to more figurative work and portraiture, but whatever the work his style is characterized by his trademark vibrancy of colour and an attention to fine detail, often accompanied by a slightly surreal twist.
