About Gary

Born in Solihull, Gary Martin is a Fine Artist working primarily with oil paints. Gary spent many years working in Graphic Design and successfully built a freelance illustration career. He returned to art in 2018 and has worked on numerous commissions for both landscapes and portraiture. His expressive brushwork creates a painterly blend of classical realism and impressionism.
