Martin was born in Farnham in Surrey in 1937 and graduated from Wimbledon College of Art in 1957 and Hornsey College of Art in 1958. After teaching for 5 years, during which he exhibited his work in many London galleries, he decided to become a professional artist.
Martin has been painting professionally now for more than 50 years. His original works (some 6,000 to date) have sold all round the world and his reputation as an artist is unquestionable. He has held one-man shows at London's Woodstock Gallery, Weitzmann Gallery, Mansard Gallery, Heal's Gallery, Liberty's, Ogilvy & Mather, Seen Gallery, Nicholas Martine Gallery, Bankside Gallery, Toronto's Kar Gallery of Fine Art, California's British Week Exhibition, New York's The Forum and at Gallerie Forlane in Paris.
His works are in many private collections, including Marks & Spencer, The National Bank of Detroit, Holbourn Aeros,Cado Furniture, GPlan Furniture, Gatx Shipping, the Metropolitan Water Board, Rank Leisure Hotels, British Airways, the Chase Manhattan Bank and Oxfordshire Education Committee.
Martin's series of panoramic paintings capture the particular landscape and seascape in a way few artists can. The mood and distinctive colours he produces fully bring out the atmosphere of the scene and make them a joy to view.
