Title: "Friendship Stone"
Martin Needom is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana and has lived on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell since 1969. A retired secondary, social studies, and art teacher, he holds a BA in art from Southeastern Louisiana College. Working primarily as a three-dimensional artist, he also works in two-dimensional mixed media, oil, and acrylics as well as monotype print making and photography. His contemporary three dimensional works consist of a variety of materials such as paper, wood, stone, acrylic composite, steel, and bronze. Most two dimensional work reflects his interest in the landscape of coastal Louisiana, and also non objective subject matter.
