Abby Martin attained a degree in Fine Art focusing in Sculpture, from The University of Creative Arts, Farnham in 2009. Currently working alongside Sculptor Teresa Martin to create various works and public commissions together such as Territorial Streak, a large tiger for London Zoo and “The Adur Portals”, by the new Ferry Bridge at Shoreham-by-Sea.
As seen in her commission in Frensham Heights School grounds, Abby Martin’s sculptures are inspired by the natural environment, with vibrant designs, using highly developed and durable casting processes. They could be described as manmade nature or ‘fake nature’ and they are intentionally non-confrontational, blending in with their organic environment, enhancing and transforming a space creating a unobtrusive natural scene. They leave the audience at leisure to pass through at will, providing a source of escapism.
