Historical Research

Mr. Martin extensively researches the particular regiments, personalities, and monuments depicted in his drawings. He often places monuments in different and more geographically and historically accurate locations on the battlefield. This juxtaposition of images combined together within the same drawing has become a signature design element frequently used by Mr. Martin.

Mr. Martin spends many weekends and summer vacations passionately traipsing the fields of West Point, Gettysburg and other Civil War sites, drawing preliminary sketches, shooting reference photographs, and finding inspiration for his art. While not out walking the battlefields, he resides with his wife, daughter and son in Yorktown Heights, New York where he has also established his Art Studio.

Mr. Martin just completed a commission for the Yorktown Historical Society for their 25th anniversary and the 225th Anniversary of the American Revolution, to create a print commemorating Yorktown Heights’ dramatic Revolutionary War history. Titled “Eternal Vigilance” the work features a NY Patriot in front of the First Presbyterian Church. A new drawing,“Graduation Morning” , was accepted by the Association of Graduates, USMA for publication as an Academy Bicentennial Commemorative fine art print.
