THE ARTIST

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 favourite 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’. My resin art portfolio is updated daily –

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 $310,000 to date. Bring on that cure.

Through my art I hope to create much needed awareness about Mitochondrial Disease.

The Limited Edition Range

Martine has experimented with many different mediums from resin, mixed media seascape to fine art photography.

Each of the artworks in our online Gallery are sold as limited Edition series of her original paintings and photography, selling at an affordable price point.

The bespoke element of my work is quite unique. Whilst clients can choose from my limited edition online gallery, I delight most in working with clients to create something personal to their brief – colour, sizing, materials, mood and budget. Essentially, I love to listen, love to fulfil a brief and adore delighting people.

THE CAUSE

 

A percentage of every sale is donated to Mitochondrial disease (MITO). Why? MITO affects children and adults all over the world, and is a difficult disease to diagnose and treat. It robs the body of energy and life. The World Health Organisation has calculated that neurodegenerative diseases, also associated with Mitochondrial dysfunction will become the world’s second leading cause of death by the year 2040. I’m passionate to help find a cure for this disease. My youngest son suffered from Mito for 5 years before he was diagnosed with the disease.

Consequently, this has played a big part in our family life and continues to do so. I have established a fund raising link:
