Martha Winter was born in London where she began her art training going on to study Fine Art in Falmouth and Norwich. Since moving to Cambridge and following a trip to the Galapagos, she has become interested in how scientific research influences our understanding of the natural world. Through observing nature and biomimicry, Winter has developed unique processes creating heavily textured permanent wall based pieces reminiscent of satellite imagery and microscopy. She has been guest artist at a conference at the Wellcome Trust and was artist in residence at the National Institute of Agricultural Botany and on the Norfolk Broads. The University of Cambridge has several of her larger pieces in the collection at the Department of Chemistry.
Winter regularly contributes to group exhibitions including shows in London, Bristol and East Anglia. She has been selected for several ‘Open’ exhibitions including Kettle’s Yard, Wysing Arts, Artsway and the Discerning Eye at the Mall Galleries. She gained a ‘Year of the Artist’ award from the Arts Council and has received commissions from her local Council and arts organisations. Her work is regularly shown at Art Fairs in London and New York. Much of her time is spent experimenting and developing new work for exhibitions whilst also working on commissions for private and corporate clients.
