Hello. I’m Gary Martin – An Artist and Illustrator based in beautiful Chester, UK.

"Singing has always seemed to me the most perfect means of expression. It is so spontaneous … Since I cannot sing, I paint." – Georgia O'Keeffe

Artwork for the heart

Everyone connects with art in different ways. If you have ever wanted an original artwork for your house, a special portrait for your legacy or a landscape painting of your favourite place to bring you joy then why not commission a bespoke piece of art? 

All my art is produced with the finest artist quality paints and mediums and UV varnished to protect the colours. The finished painting can be supplied with or without a frame.

If you have ever thought about commissioning an artwork, buying art or have a project that needs illustrating then why not contact me with your ideas.
