My name is Martin Mc Cormack, and I am originally from Finglas in Dublin, Ireland. I worked most of my life in the area of Science, while painting as a hobby, often sporadically.
Over the years I gained enormous inspiration and training from various different night courses at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. The skills learned there are put to use now as I paint full time.
I have discovered the beauty of Irish Peat as a dark and textured medium that creates a strong impact when used in a painting, so I have incorporated this in a lot of my recent work. I am still developing, and enjoying the journey.
