Deborah Martin initiated her formal training as a painter while attending the Museum School in Boston, MA. Her artistic work examines the complexities of individual experience particularly in it's relation to home, isolation and memory. Much of her practice emerges in collaborative conversation with writers and poets, taking form through exhibitions and publications. For the past several years she has been collaborating with the poet and literary critic Nicky Sa-eun Schildkraut.

Martin's work has been exhibited throughout the US and is included in the permanent collection of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. A selection of Martin's "Narrow Lands" paintings appear as illustrations in the book "Building Provincetown" written by New York Times Reporter David Dunlap (2015).

Currently Martin is exploring the relationship and impact Autistic children have within their immediate family. The intent of this new body of work is to create social awareness while exploring the process a family goes through as their Autistic child becomes an adult. 

Martin received her BFA and BS Masters of Arts in Teaching, Art Education from The Museum School of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University.
