Martin Buffery has been involved in the world of art and design since school. Currently employed by Land Rover as an interior design manager, working on vehicles such as the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Freelander.
Married, with a beautiful daughter, Martin shares his spare time at home between his family and his artwork.
Martin’s interest in aviation is long standing and led him to gain his PPL flying Cessna C152s from Wellesbourne Mountford airfield near his home.
Clearly Martin’s interest in all things automotive has led to his full time job at Land Rover, however he is also the Treasurer and Membership Secretary for the Guild of Motoring Artists
Martin’s love of the natural world has been life long and he feels very lucky to have been able to observe wildlife all around the world including Africa, USA and Borneo
Martin regularly exhibits his artwork nationally with the Guild of Motoring Artists, Guild of Aviation Artists and the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art.
