Martin was born in Bristol, England, and studied art from a young age. He specialised in Natural History Illustration at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design before completing a degree at Sunderland University. From his studio in Bristol Martin works primarily in oils and achieves his distinctive style by using a layered technique, deliberately pushing areas of the painting back and others forward giving the subject weight and a realistic impression of light. He has exhibited his work with the Wildlife Art Society and regularly sketches from live subject matter to keep his work fresh.
