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