About Martin

I am a British artist based in the UK.
I create original one-off abstract ceramic sculpture and 2D artworks.​

Why am I creating art?
Today’s society can sometimes seem mundane and in keeping with the status quo. Therefore, I believe that creating art is what it means to be human. 

I enjoy creating art I have not seen before and bring it into the world to exist. All of us have the potential to dream and turn ideas into reality. I want to live in a world of creativity, and new experiences. I want to create art that liberates the imagination. 

What is my purpose?
My purpose is to create art to evoke curiosity. 

The Historic English Heritage monument Stonehenge helped me to develop this way of thinking. To this day its purpose and meaning still largely remains in question. It forces myself to be curious, to learn anew and reflect upon my existence. I do not intend to replicate its presence in any way but use this as a foundation to generate ideas around imagination, possibility and curiosity. The ideas behind my artworks has to resonate with me and at times it can be interchangeable with my own experience of life.

My art is created for you to explore your imagination, make decisions about what you are seeing and connect with it through your own experience. I want to communicate a fascination for the unknown as life is full of questions.
