My name is Martine Vanderspuy, art director and principle artist behind the Martine Gallery. I have lived in many parts of the world growing up on four continents and finally settling in Australia. I chose to study graphic design which led me to setting up a multiple award-winning graphics businesses.
I have experimented with many different mediums. Resin however, has become my favorite and principal medium of experimentation and creativity. The medium is fluid in nature and extremely difficult to work with as it constantly moves making it a challenge to capture the colour and fluidity of the final composition. Using many layers, the resin creates vibrancy, colour and clarity, the shadows and the glint of light on water. The tactile nature and depth of the resin almost allows you to dive into the artwork. I aim to create artworks that lift peoples spirits by viewing the ever changing ocean. Creating my art series ‘Window to the Sea’.

I also love fine art photography. This has resulted in my Botanical range all available through my website. I love the vibrant colours of floral. Mixing them with inks and multi media through Photoshop results in a unique artwork to add a pop of colour to any interior. All of my photographic works are printed into archival canvas with a 75 year ink life. All produced in Australia ready to hang.

Apart from my art I help support a charity to raise funds for research for Mitochondria disease. Our youngest child suffers from this devastating disease. We have raised much need funds for research. Over $250,000 to date. Bring on that cure.
Through my art I hope to create much needed awareness about Mitochondrial Disease.
