I had not painted since leaving school, and initially envisaged working as a draughtsman, before eventually choosing to become an engineering apprentice.
In 2012 Geraldine my wife realized I needed an interest outside work and purchased a recreational art course at the Southern Regional College, for me to enjoy some relaxation. Everything else is History.
“There’s nothing to explain the feelings you enjoy when a customer is really pleased with a painting you have created for them, and if I can continue to receive those feelings I’ll be happy”

Southern Regional College Exhibition.
In February 2018 Martin held his first exhibition in Newry City Library which proved very successful with some lovely encouraging comments, numerous sales of his paintings and prints.
Martin also gained a number of commissions from this exhibition.
