Martin was born in the former Czechoslovakia and presently resides in Texas. His passion for art started as a young child while spending his days in his father’s workshop. There his father spent most of his spare time sculpting and painting. Martin’s love and appreciation of artistic creativity was inspired through his father’s enthusiasm to create beautiful objects and images.
Even though he has been sketching and drawing all his younger days, his true talent blossomed while in college. It was there and then when he began pursuing his career as an artist. Martin transitioned from graphite to ballpoint pen/ink and soon discovered pastel, watercolor and acrylics.
After attending an art exhibition in Texas, he was introduced to the unusual form of art called Scratchboard. He soon discovered the beauty and freedom that Scratchboard provided. It was no surprise that he began to fully focus on this medium. His artwork is enjoyed by private owners in the US as well as Europe.
