About Martina Flynn
Memory Box Art
Martina is an actress best associated with RTÉ’s Fair City on which she appeared for the first 10 years of the programme. She retired from acting to rear her children but now finds that she needs an outlet for her artistic talents.
All her life she has dabbled with painting and interior design all her life but it wasn’t until she discovered mixed media art that she felt she now had a medium which she could share.
Martina uses found items such as sea shells from her local beach, wood pieces from a forest walk near where she lives and broken jewellery. She combines these on a painted backdrop. Each piece is unique and represents for Martina a special place in her life.
Martina’s mixed media creations recall times past as well as romantic ideas, thoughts and places and although the pieces are essentially abstract compositions, the use of flowers, broken jewellery, crystals, shells and other found objects make them accessible to viewers. She uses painted backgrounds and frames to mount and present her mixed media pieces.
Martina recently moved to Wexford with her husband and two children so that she could be nearer to nature and the sea which she loves.
She is currently writing her first novel which is at the halfway stage and she hopes it will be finished for Christmas.
“Martina Flynn Fitzgerald is a talented creator of bespoke pieces of art. Each piece is created using recycled materials, from jewels and beads to wood shavings to give a vintage feel. I have been lucky to purchase a number of these incredible works. Not only is the art amazing and affordable, Martina’s communication with customers is fantastic. Each piece was delivered safely packaged. My love of art has grown by being witness to the creative mind of such a talented person. If you are looking to support Irish, support the arts and have the most beautiful pieces to decorate your home, office or to give as a gift look no further”
