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,
The approach to my work stems from personal experience and exploration. A love of nature influences most of my paintings. Often the title will suggest the origin of the composition but the emotional quality is created by the choice of colors. The interplay of color provokes such pleasure for me as I paint that I don’t want it to end. Large, expressive, colorful works on canvas are what I enjoy painting the most. When I paint I simply enjoy the energetic flow and the creative process. It is a joy to follow my passion. Inspiration is infinite and the desire to express is extremely pressing.
Her paintings have been purchased by residential and corporate collectors since her first show in 2003.
