My work is simply the exploration of and reaction to the feelings I have. The dreadful gaze into the abyss that is everyone's future . A response when old memories of my childhood invade my idle mind . Being never quite sad enough by clinging on to that sliver of optimism.
After studying art design and illustration straight after secondary school Martyn Woods spent the next few decades pursuing various creative careers such as physical model making and Architectural Visualization.
With the birth of his children, he took a step back from the professional world and dedicated his time to helping them through their early years of development.
The recent pandemic and the existential threat of the impending environmental changes triggered a period of deep reflection which resulted with him reigniting his artistic endeavours.
