About The Artist

I am a Sussex-based stitch artist with a farm-based studio on the Sussex and Surrey border.

Mark making with thread has been fundamental to my art since my teenage years. Both free machine and hand embroidery are central to my work. Colour, and the lack of it, play vital roles. My machine embroidery is often monochromatic; I am very drawn to the black line of cotton thread on plain canvas although at times, if the subject matter calls for it, I will introduce colour. On the other hand, my hand embroidery explodes with colour and texture.

I am inspired by the wider environment and of that around me; from the back garden, local surroundings, photographs and images from around the world. A City and Guilds embroidery course led to Reigate School of Art and Fine Art courses, still using my embroidery skills.

Art Groups / Exhibitions

I was invited to join the ShedArt artist cooperative and have been a member ever since, exhibiting in many venues throughout Surrey and Sussex. Being amongst many painters, I have been enticed by the medium and found it to be a pleasant alternative.

I am also a member of an East Grinstead-based art group, Example, which has undertaken two Arts Council funded exhibitions within the local community.

About The Artist

I am a local artist, based in Eastbourne – art has always been an intrinsic part of my life. I originally went to Eastbourne Art College, to study Graphic Design. I completed my studies at degree level and continue to have a successful commercial career.

Over the last few years, I’ve made time to enjoy experimenting more with different media and discovered ink and bleach. I love the energy and unpredictability of using two colours of ink and achieving many more when the bleach works its magic! I sometimes like to include black fine liner and gold acrylic details when I need more detail or highlights. I find constant inspiration from my surrounding views of the South Downs and local coastline.

Exhibitions

About The Artist

Sheila Martin has been painting avidly for 12 years. She retired from being a chef 6 years ago and had been working in offices previously. Sheila lived in Kelvedon in Braintree Essex and attended various art classes and progressed from there, before recently moving to St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex.

Art is all about emotion, feeling and giving to others. It is such a wonderful thing to do to start from scratch and build up a painting for people to enjoy. So Sheila never did art for a living prior to retirement, but has been able to recently enjoy success and build a reputation to be able to hold solo exhibitions.

She likes to paint in all types of media, she uses pebeo golds and silvers, glitter and masking fluid. When she went to school there were never all these wonderful art colours and medias to hand. Flowers and forests are her main works.

Sheila Martin  - Sussex Artist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital
Please enjoy Sheila's art and if you would like one, she would only be delighted to paint for you or to teach you her techniques.

Art Groups

I belong to the Battle Art Group (East Sussex) and have had 2 solo exhibitions this year.
Member of Colchester Art Society, Essex.

Art Tuition For Children

I am now doing demonstrations in Hobbycraft in Chelmsford, Essex. I have done 4 now. The children come up and help me paint.

I have a CRB and would like to take them for 2 to 3 hours on a lesson. I feel that what I do helps the brain to focus and stops boredom by painting pictures. I have been commissioned work by various people over the last 2 years
