It’s always good when something of what you are doing gets some form of recognition, and this is where I show some my successes.

Solo Exhibition


My first solo exhibition is to be held in the Little Theatre in Leicester during the month of May 2023. Plant Planet is a collection of my recent artworks based on flowers and plants. I've used several different types of medium including gouache, oil pastel and linoprints.

On Saturday May 13th 2023, I have a meet the artist day from 11:00am - 1:00pm where I am available to talk about my work and you can view or buy the artworks and greetings cards on show.

Open May 2nd - Jun 4th 2023 Little Theatre, Dover Street, Leicester LE1 6PW. Open on performance and matinee days.

Classic Car Paintings


Triumph Magazine Article December 2017
The editor of the Pre 1940 Triumph Motor Club magazine contacted me after seeing my painting of a Triumph Gloria on my website. This painting went on to be sold to one of their members and commissions from other members acquired. Here's a transcript of the article:

WORKS OF ART. The painting (left) is almost as desirable as the actual car. Local amateur Leistershire artist Frank Bingley spotted Martin's Gloria 6 Light Saloon at a recent gathering and felt compelled to get it on canvas. He's captured it very nicely and has agreed to sell his services to members who might like something to hang in the house to remind them of what's under the Winter covers in the garage. I've discussed his techniques and a variety of either cotton covered boards or framed pictures in various sizes are available to the customer's choice and prices start from around £100, plus carriage (which can be saved if you collect). Frank is happy to work from your favourite photographs although he often prefers to visit.
