About Martin Yeoman

Born in 1953 Martin trained from 1975-1979 at the Royal Academy Schools, London. Among his commissions to date are Her Majesty The Queen’s grandchildren, Sir Alan Hodgkin OM, Sir Brinsley Ford and the former Bishop of Birmingham Hugh Montefiori. Winner of the 2002 Ondaatje Portrait Prize, his work is both painterly and poetic. He is considered by many to be one of the finest draughtsmen working today and is sought after by artists and collectors alike.

He has accompanied HRH The Prince of Wales on official overseas tours to India, Hong Kong and the Gulf States, and teaches at the Royal Drawing School.
