Martin Kaye Artist
I'm a project based artist working with colour, varied media and line to portray recognisable subjects in an individual way.
I'm currently interested in making landscape and townscape cartoons based on places I know well - the Glamorgan Coast, Ruthin and the Clwydian Range in North Wales.

I use watercolour pastels, ink and watercolour pencils which give me the vibrant colours and sharp details that I like.
