Debbie Martin has had a career path that has taken many directions over the past 30 years, and they have all contributed to her becoming an artist. Working closely with artists as an art consultant led her to embark upon the path that she had abandoned as a student. About her art Martin says,
“I would use three words to describe my new work: Joy, comfort and ease. The true meaning of those words has changed a lot for me in the past year. I live by them now.
Often, I don’t realize the impact of an experience until I am working in my studio and see it in my art. The studio becomes my personal paradise and I appreciate the time I have there more and more as time passes.
The search for new perspectives and the intrigue of mixing and experimenting with paint on canvas keep the creative process fresh and inspiring. The days feel too short to explore all that I want to learn. I feel as passionate about my art today as the day I began.”
Her paintings have been purchased by residential and corporate collectors since her first show in 2003.
