Stéphane MARTIN

(born in 1971) I have been landscaper for several years up to day... this professional activity may have a direct relationship with the art and images world in which I have progressed for nearly 20 years.

As a student at the School of Fine Arts in Rennes (France) and at the College of Arts, Design and Multimedia at the University of Portsmouth (UK), I had the opportunity to discover the world of images through my experiences as press/publishing/advertsiting illustrator, production designer and colourist in cartoons, children's book publishing editor, and finally, visual and graphic arts teacher..
