Martyn graduated from Brunel University in 2004 and  lives and works in Bedford in the UK

As an Artist Martyn is mostly interested in calm and reflective portraiture, his work is gentle, figurative and naturalistic. He places a strong importance on both emotional insight and draughtsmanship in his work. He is equally happy working with paint or pencil. He has developed a distinctive intricate style that is soft delicate, and rewards repeated viewing.

One of his paintings has been nominated for the 2017 BP portrait Award and will be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

He was nominated for the National Open Art Award in 2016 and regularly exhibits work in Bedfordshire. He is currently working on a number of commissioned portraits.

He is a member of the Eagle Gallery, Bedford.
