Her Biography

Martina Furlong is a visual artist from County Wexford, Ireland. Having completed her BA (Hons) in fine art painting at Limerick School of Art and Design in 1996 Martina moved to London where she exhibited in numerous solo and group shows.

Since her return to Wexford in 2015 Martina’s work has been influenced by the things she sees and experiences daily; Irish landscape, books, people, meditation. In her work she mixes reality with memories, imagination and the unconscious to create a personal interpretation of her inner and outer worlds. Martina works mostly in oils and her technique of applying layer upon layer of textured paint gives each piece a sense of history and a wonderful sensuous quality.

In August 2019 Martina had the honour of being one of five artists invited to create an 8x12 foot painting on site at Electric Picnic, Ireland’s premier music and arts festival.
