Martin’s artistic talents first emerged at the University of Guelph where he liked to tease his `artsy´ friends about the “bird courses” in which they were enrolled. To ensure that he knew that his teasing was founded and to fulfill the need for more non-math and non-science credits, Martin decided to enroll in an art class that he expected would be laughably easy. It was far from simple, challenging his creative side. Martin enjoyed it so much that Fine Art became an interesting compliment to his degree in Computer Science.
Since then, Martin has taken art classes and continues to practice when time allows. Over the past 5 years Martin started attending a pastel life drawing studio at Dundas Valley School of Art and the Eden Mills Monday night studio. Martin joined the Eden Mills group to become faster at drawing.
