THE ARTIST Martine Vanderspuy is the art director and principle artist behind The Martine Gallery.
She creates commissioned pieces and limited edition artwork for clients all over the world. Martine comes from a robust graphics background with over twenty five years experience in the advertising and magazine industries. She has worked with her own client and interior designers creating bespoke art for private homes and offices.
THE ARTWORK Martine’s work fuses the imagery of photography with the bold aesthetics of graphic design.
That’s been the appeal for most of her clients. She loves to blend her photography, illustration and painting with gorgeous, tactile effects like resin, varnish, paint, perspex and metal. She uses hard and soft mediums -
from hanging artwork, to wall murals, metal outdoor or garden art, rugs and upholstery fabrics. Interiors are her passion, consequently her artwork is designed with that in mind. The bespoke element of her work is quite unique. Whilst clients can choose from her limited edition online gallery, she delights mostly in working with her clients to create something personal to their brief – colour, sizing, materials, mood and budget. She’ll even help turn a client’s own photographs into an art piece.
THE CAUSE A percentage of sales are donated to Mitochondrial Disease (Mito) research. Mitochondrial disease is a debilitating genetic disorder that robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure and potentially death. A new research study states approximately 80% of children who show symptoms before age five, will die before age 20. In children the mortality rate is roughly that of cancer. Martine’s youngest son has Mito. So it’s been a big part of the family and continues to influence how Martine runs her life. Martine has raised over $200,000 for research. Her passion is to support finding a cure.
