Mid-2008, after a successful career as a fashion designer, she has fully applied herself to her autonomous work. “I seek freedom in my work”. Martine's art is characterized by exploring the boundaries between illustration and contemporary figurative painting; there are traditional style elements to her work, mixed-in with more abstract elements and compositions. The work consists of imaginary characters with a stylistic nod to fashion and a great eye for detail. The mostly female figures are depicted in a surreal environment or are isolated in their thoughts. Both on canvas, wood or paper the works contain a complex energy that makes you stop and enthrall you in their illusiveness.'

Working in steel and iron, using industrial processes, Burke’s engineering background has strongly informed his working practice. His work often reflects mankind’s relationship with mass–production and standardisation through a rhythm and repetition of materials. Peter Burke currently lives and works in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire.' Link here.  photo peter-burke-assembly-2001_zpseitsnxyf.jpg  photo 598476_10150920687638692_1023004635_n_zpsabsqiauc.jpg
