Martin Shire


Martin Shire is originally from western Quebec and now makes his home in Victoria, BC. After graduating from Sheridan College with his diploma in their Illustration program he spent his formative years doing extensive studio and illustration work in Montreal before moving to Toronto where he painted extensive amenity maps in the commercial real estate sector.

Shire started using watercolours and inks, graduating to a computer stylus and then to acrylic paint and oils. Upon moving to Victoria in 2007 he began developing his fine art skills and began his long trek as a fine artist. Vivid strong colours are his primary landmark and his recognizable style has caught a growing number of patrons and supporters.

Martin Shire likes to return to western Quebec regularly to his cottage on the Ottawa river in the Pontiac region, which he says has inspired him for many years.
