A native of Florida, Marty grew up traveling around the state with his family where he developed a passion for painting and drawing. After his family moved from Chiefland to Tallahassee, he attended Florida State University where he studied art and history. After college, Marty has worked doing graphic design for several State Agencies, but has continuously pursued his fine art interest in depicting the animals and landscapes of the southern United States. Originally creating pen and ink drawings, Marty expanded into watercolor and acrylic painting in the last several years.
His work has been exhibited regionally and his ink drawings have won numerous honors.
His most recent exhibitions have been at the 29th Tri-State Juried Water Media Exhibition at the FSU Museum of Fine Art in Tallahassee, Florida and the 8th Nature and Wildlife Art Exhibition in St. Augustine, Florida.
