Martin is a St. Augustine artist and a professor at Flagler College. His works have been displayed throughout Northeast Florida, including the Jacksonville International Airport. His prints offer intimate views of various animal and plant forms, such as grasses, palmettos, and eggs. By focusing on details, Martin creates works that are both abstract and recognizable. He draws inspiration from art history, particularly botanical and biological illustrations from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
At Art Fusion, you receive a piece of foam board and a pencil. A MOCA educator provides some instructions, then you decide what to include in your nature-themed artwork: your own experiences, Martin's artworks, or images provided by the educator. Then draw your image on the foam paper, creating a clear outline indented in the foam. Then you will use various printmaking tools to make a block print.
