Edith Martin

  • Liscloon Farm, Pastel 8"x10" $550.

To Edith being creative is a way of life and she finds painting absorbing and fulfilling. The juxtaposition of shapes and colours in the patchwork fields of the countryside around her home holds a fascination for her. Using a variety of media she creates her vision of the landscapes of County Tyrone, Donegal and beyond.

As she always wished to indulge in the Arts, Edith took a break from teaching to complete a Foundation Course in Art and Design. This only whetted her appetite for more. After exploring collage and other media, Edith’s interest in using pastels became her main passion.

Her paintings can be seen in: The McGilloway Gallery, Londonderry, Manor Fine Arts, Banbridge, Battletown Gallery, Newtownards, Lorica Artworks, US and the Annual and Members’ Exhibitions of the Pastel Society of Ireland.
