Artists -> Geoffrey Martin

I'm Geoffrey Martin, a watercolour artist specializing in portraits of animals, including dogs, cats, birds and horses.

I now live on Pender Island, in beautiful British Columbia.

With a passion for watercolours that goes back to my school days I have now combined my love of animals with the joy of painting, and specialize in portraits of pets and animals - and people too.

I emigrated to Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1971, and decided to stay. Putting my graphics skills to use I began a thirty-year career in advertising, graphics and multi-media.

After a brief interlude as an apprentice stained glass window designer I studied illustration and typography for three years at the Exeter College of Art, graduating with a degree equivalency in art & design. With a further year of study at the college I gained licentiate admission to the Society of Industrial Artists and Designers (LSIAD).

I was born in Devon, England many years ago.
