Martin has been a professional figurative sculptor since 1996. He studied figurative sculpture at Stafford Art Collage, under the R.B.S. sculptor Michael Talbot. Prior to this he was a professional woodcarver. He has also worked as an assistant to a number of sculptors including John McKenna, Jonathan Wylder and Irena Sedlecka.
‘I try to create powerful and dramatic sculptures, which have a beauty of form. Sculpture should be tactile, drawing the viewer to want to interact physically as well as visually with the work. With a life time fascination with the way the body moves, I enjoy the challenge of capturing the essence of movement, balance and tension within a static sculpture’
Martin’s work is exhibited at many outdoor sculpture exhibitions and has been a regular exhibitor at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and other RHS shows. His work is in private collections in Great Britain, Europe, America and Asia. He has been commissioned to produce work for many private clients as well as companies including in 2012 a commission to produce a sculpture for the entrance hall of one of the Olympic training venues. At present he is working on a commission for a corporate client in Hong Kong, to create a set of 5ft high boxing hares.
