Martin Maxim
Watercolour Artist 
I spent my early life in Reading before going on to Berkshire College of Art. My four years of study in painting, drawing and sculpture was followed by a period of teaching. 

I made a change of direction and started working in a commercial design studio for several years, learning layout and printing techniques. This strong grounding in design enabled me to develop a freelance career as an illustrator employed in advertising, promotions and book publishing. After moving to Devon in 1986 I divided my time between commercial illustration and painting. 
My preoccupation is with 'seeing' and reproducing light and shadow, design and construction, time and place. I work in watercolour, gouache, pen and ink.
The paintings below are for WESC 2019 Exhibition

There is a selection of my work in Ford Street Gallery

Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor, Devon, UK. You will also find some of my work in The Bracken Gallery, Chudleigh, Devon
