Martin Procter was born in Yorkshire, England, in 1942, and moved to Devon in 1956. After a career in building and architecture, he became a full-time artist in 1997, and was soon established as one of the Westcountry's leading contemporary artists.

Self-taught, his work reflects his long-held interests in man's marks on the landscape, and a passion for remote hill country and wild places - Dartmoor, where he lives, the Celtic margins of Britain, and further afield in Atacama, Arizona, Nepal and the Polar regions. His paintings are informed by these travels, with ideas culled from reading, music, and memory.

He has had numerous solo and joint exhibitions, and his work can be found in many collections, both in Britain and the United States.
