England Nanette Martin was born in Nottingham in1970, later moving to Cornwall with her family; she is a self taught artist in mixed media.It was a debilitating back injury, arising from her previous career as a nurse that was the beginning of this wonderful talent immerging. It is the magic of this place where she lives, that is her constant inspiration. Nanette's world is a place that every seagull, fish and crab, in fact almost everything, takes on a life and personality of its own. The charm of her paintings is irresistible, inviting us to join her, and spend some time with her friends. Once we have entered into her world we have a compelling urge to return eagerly, waiting for the next series to emerge.
