Martyn studied Fine-Art Sculpture at Loughborough University, graduating with a Second Class Honours, Upper Division, Degree in 2002.
He was awarded his MA by the University of Northampton in 2023.

Martyn lives on a narrowboat on the River Nene and works mainly from his studio workshop at Upper Harlestone in Northamptonshire. He also uses the family blacksmith forge in Newtondale, North Yorkshire.

"My work is minimalist, I explore the fluidity of water and the effect it has upon its surroundings. The strength and resilience of water is portrayed through my manipulation and combination of materials: wood, stone and steel."
