Born and raised in Minnesota, Martin has a tolerance for diversity. "I find my art varies throughout the seasons and the years from abstract to a naive impressionism. I am absolutely enthralled by abstract art, I return to it constantly. Within abstraction lies reality."
Martin is a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a B.A. in Studio Arts. "As diverse as the Minnesota climate, are the influences evident within these acrylic paintings. I begin working serendipitously on mulitple pieces and rely on "happy accidents", then I paint more intuitively in reaction to my intial marks. When finished I hope to discover elements of ancient maps, paths of the explorers, primitive cave drawings, aboriginal symbols, mythology figures, astrologic signs, abstract land forms, great geologic events, oriental ideograms, native pictographs, rock and roll music and the blues."
