MARTIN TRUEFITT-BAKER

I am lucky to have my studio in the Brecon Beacons in Wales, close to the river Usk. I have spent years involved in Art and Design but it is only recently that I have returned to concentrating on producing my own work.

I mostly produce Acrylic and watercolour paintings and I also produce carefully designed and hand printed, very limited edition, linocut prints. Some of my prints show my early training and work as an illustrator, often with quirky themes and combinations of images.

Recently the wonderful local landscape, wildlife and the changing seasons have become increasingly important in my work. I am often out with my camera and sketch book looking for inspiration. Searching for those special images that aim to express the deeper spirit in the changing light, trees, hedgerows, and wildlife around us. My Art heroes include Blake, Turner, Palmer, Millais, Bawden, Ravillious and Nash.
