Martha graduated in 2018 with a BA in Graphic Design from Falmouth University. She now lives and works in Falmouth, Cornwall, and is a landscape and still life painter.
Her paintings are a reaction to the coastal environment which has always surrounded her, frequently inspired by the abstract and modern direction many of the St Ives Artists brought to the West of Cornwall. Fascinated by the shifting identity of both the north and south coastlines, her work is a reaction to the changing light, structures and colours that surround her whilst she paints.
Process and the space she works in has always been important – working directly within the landscape allows an immersive experience, reflected in the brush strokes and energy of the work, which she has begun to translate into her still life studies.
