Art and technology have been life-long passions of Martin Greer. After winning numerous awards for his oil paintings when younger, Martin had to choose between art school and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Although both options would have satisfied Martin's strong desire for a career where he could "design, create, and build", MIT ultimately won out. Soon after, the world of "high tech" lured Martin in the early 1980's when he co-founded one of the fastest growing computer services firms in the U.S., which he later sold in 1997.

Through his fifteen years as Chief Operating Officer of a national company, Martin maintained his strong interest in art and painting. Discovering his talent in sculpting happened quite by coincidence in 1999. While searching for a past time that he could share with his teenage daughter, the father-daughter pair settled on taking sculpting classes together. Martin immediately fell in love with this medium. Two years later, Martin made his debut as a sculptor at the 2001 Loveland Sculpture Show, with an impressive portfolio of bronzes.

In viewing Martin's bronzes, an observer first notices the artist's ability to capture the passion of a moment. An observer can feel the tenderness shared by two lovers, or the joy between a father and his daughters, or the serenity of a young woman, or a glimpse into the private thoughts of a woman. Martin's work evokes an emotional response in the observer, with an attention to form and feeling that brings his subject matter alive. As a result, Martin's pieces can be found in galleries and private collections throughout the country.

With high technology behind him as well as the task of raising two daughters, Martin has returned to his artistic roots and now sculpts full time in his studio just outside of Denver, Colorado.
