"I have been waiting and waiting for this beautiful work. What I predominantly like is your swerving perspective...... The brushstroke, color, sense of the sun's dipping to the earth and the earth's swooping to the sun are wonderful"

"My request to Martin was to paint me an Art Deco lady. I am so impressed with the quality of his work and the detail he has shown on the picture, it's absolutely first class and depicts the subject I requested with precision of the Art Deco period. I have no hesitation in recommending Martin's art work to future clients and I am sure his work will become recognised and appreciated by many in the future."

Featuring Charlie aged 8, Michael 5 & Alanna who was 4 months old when the photo was taken. Really pleased with the picture as he has captured my grandchildren beautifully.”
