WATERCOLOR | PRINTMAKING
“I have always had a love for the outdoors and hold a special reverence for trees. I experiment with the medium of printmaking to produce semi-abstract landscape trees. The prints are variable editions (VE) using mat board. I attempt to obtain an interesting texture using different materials, and I search for a print that has an organic, natural looking design that is strong and rich in value."
— Mike Martin
"Then shall all the trees of the wood shout for joy before the Lord when he comes to judge the earth."

Mike Martin lives in Comfort, Texas, with his wife, Susan. He is a plein air painter who paints in watercolor. Martin has recently returned to his roots as a printmaker and works primarily in collagraph prints.
Collagraphy is a printmaking process in which textural and three-dimensional materials are applied to a rigid substrate. Similar to collage, the word collagraph is derived from the Greek word koll or kolla, meaning glue, and graph, meaning the activity of drawing.
