Martin Kirkwood, London Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement Hi, I’m Martin from England, a self taught artist.
I’ve always had a love of painting and started off like many kids making a mess with wax crayons on walls. I got told off for it too.
My earliest attempts were trees, just green blobs on a brown stick until someone pointed out that trees are more complex. I started adding branches and started to look at things as they appear and not so much how they should appear.
I believe that anyone can draw and paint, they just need to learn how to see. I’m still learning.
I work in a variety of media including pencil, pastel and acrylic paints. My favourite medium however is oils.
