Deborah Martin (born June 9, 1961) is a contemporary American painter. Her artistic pretend examines the complexities of individual experience particularly in its relation to home, isolation and memory. Much of her practice emerges in collaborative conversation taking into consideration writers and poets, taking form through exhibitions and publications. Her stark landscape paintings often convey the essence inherent within marginalized communities that exist on the fringes of American society. In 2016, Martin turned her focus to portraiture developing a long term project "Portraits of Autism" exploring the attachment and impact autistic children have within their immediate family and community upon a continuum.
