A rising star in the field of animal portraiture
Martin draws inspiration from his years in Africa and tropical light shines sharply through the eyes of his animal subjects. Long days spent observing wildlife in its natural habitat translate, through his favoured pastel pencils, into intricate portraits that capture a creature's personality and essence.
Martin has held successful solo exhibitions in both Africa and Europe. He is currently a regular feature on the London wildlife art scene, having exhibited with the Society of Wildlife Artists and at the David Shepherd Foundation's Wildlife Artist of the Year event. His work has been auctioned in Paris and featured in charity auctions hosted by Christie's and Sotheby's. He is registered with the Wildlife Art Company, established by esteemed zoologist and author, Mark Carwardine. In 2010 Martin drew the first illustration of the newly discovered Myanmar snub-nosed monkey.
A driving force for Martin's work is his commitment to conservation efforts for endangered wildlife, and through his art he continues to support the work of selected wildlife charities.
