Martha is a painter living and working in Cornwall, working both plein air in the landscape and from her studio in Falmouth. Her paintings are a reaction to the coastal environment surrounding 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 response to the changing light, structures and colours that surround her whilst she paints.
Process and the space she works in has always been important to Martha – working directly within the landscape allows an immersive experience, reflected in the brush strokes and energy of the work.
