Fay Martin grew up in rural Gloucestershire in a small village close to the banks of the River Severn.
She was fascinated by waterbirds from a young age, living so close to the wetlands at Slimbridge. One of her first bedroom posters was that of her favourite, the Mandarin Duck.
It wasn't until school that Fay discovered her leaning towards illustration and she hasn't been without a black fine-liner pen since 1998. She specialised in Illustration at the Falmouth School of Art and the Arts University Bournemouth.
Today she lives in Lichfield, Staffordshire where she‘s totally immersed in her love for designing greeting cards and books for children and adults.View Full Bio
