Artist Details: Working from his studio in Weymouth, a stone's throw away from the beautiful Dorset coastline, Martin is a self-taught traditional artist specialising in oils on canvas of mainly figurative and landscape subjects. His paintings are realistic but not photographic, capturing the contrast between light and dark, the depth of shine and shadow and the fleeting moments of mood and atmosphere.

For the last fourteen years he has run his own gallery in Weymouth before retiring to concentrate on painting at a more leisurely pace. He has also exhibited wildlife paintings in South Africa winning important commissions over there. His work is becoming increasingly collectable both home and abroad.

'I never tire of figurative painting as I find it satisfying to touch on the poignancy of personal moments and the inter-relationships that occur.' Martin Leighton
