‘Spring Swallows’ is a ‘varied’ edition. Each print is slightly different in colour and unique. There will only be 25 of this original print. The lino matrix is destroyed by the printing process itself.
Martin is lucky to have his studio in the Brecon Beacons in Wales, close to the river Usk. It is impossible to paint, make prints or any art here, without being influenced by the beautiful surroundings.
He has spent years involved in Art and Design and education but it is only in the last few years that he has returned to concentrating on producing his own work.
Martin originally trained as a graphic artist and illustrator with some printmaking and book design. Now he mostly produce Acrylic and watercolour paintings and he also produces carefully designed and hand printed, very limited edition, linocut prints. Some of his prints show links to earlier work as an illustrator, often with quirky themes and combinations of images.
Recently the wonderful local landscape, wildlife and the changing seasons have become increasingly important in his work. He is often out with his camera and sketch book looking for inspiration and images that try to express the spirit and beauty in the changing light, landscape and wildlife.
Martins Art heroes include Blake, Turner, Palmer, Millais, Bawden, Ravillious and Nash.
