Didee Martin
Didee Martin was born in Sydney in 1974, her mother’s family come from Mount Isa in Queensland and her father’s family come from the Torres Strait Islands. She moved to the South Coast of New South Wales when she was 27 and resides there with her two beautiful children. As an artist, a lead pencil has been Diana’s preferred drawing instrument of choice. She states that the feeling of graphite gliding across the rough cotton fibre of a piece of Arches watercolour paper is a simple joy for her. Drawing has been a popular means of expression throughout history and one of the simplest means of communicating visual ideas and thoughts. Diana works in a range of media such as drawing, painting, printmaking, digital art, photography and graphic design. She has completed her Certificate lll and IV in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Arts at Illawarra Institute of TAFE, Nowra Campus and is currently studying for her Diploma in Visual Arts. She is currently working on a body of work, exploring what the ‘human condition’ means to her from a personal perspective with a type of abstract expressionism depicting either the figurative form or expressive portraiture. It is an on-going experimental exercise to help express thoughts of pain, sorrow, joy and happiness, to come out the other side feeling healed and at peace with some of the atrocities that can happen in life and to have compassion for those who are still finding their way out of the dark. Diana has exhibited in a number of exhibitions such as the Annual Student Arts Exhibition - Nowra Campus in 2012 for which she was awarded the ‘Campus Acquisition Artwork’ followed by a “Highly Commended Artwork’ in 2013; the Annual Black Cockatoo Art Awards held in the Shoalhaven for which she was awarded the ‘Works on Paper’ for her lino print ‘Landscape’ in 2013. Other group exhibitions include the Nowra Courthouse NAIDOC Exhibition and the Love Culburra Beach Festival Indigenous Art Exhibition. Diana was also commissioned to design digital artwork for the local Cullunghutti Aboriginal Child and Family Centre for their Children’s Disability Services Directory.
