Viv Martin was born in 1947 in Brighton and has mostly lived in that area. She studied at Bath Academy of Art, Corsham, between 1966 and 1971, completing a Diploma in Art and Design in Sculpture, Painting and Printmaking. She then moved to Goldsmiths College, London where she gained an Art Teachers Certificate (with distinction) in 1972. At this time, she began to travel widely, winning major travel scholarships in 1970/71 to Paris, Egypt and Greece. Since then, travel has been important in her work, particularly in aspects of contrasts between ancient and modern and the impact of contemporary visitors.

She taught art in schools and in adult education in East Sussex for twelve years, gradually developing a balance between work in education and more personal work as an artist. In partnership with Paul Martin she developed and ran a gallery for several years. Her work in education expanded to include management and professional development and she has worked in the NHS, the Open University, the University of Chichester and the University of Brighton, often in part-time posts or short contracts to allow time for art. She has published six books and a range of articles.

Most of her recent work has been based on printmaking, using etching, screenprint, woodcut and other relief methods. She has been developing ways of working with mixed media and collage to create larger works alongside making prints in editions. Her ideas evolve from experience of places of special significance and people who visit these places, together with collection of rubbings, simple prints and pressed flowers and leaves. She continues to work part-time in the University of Brighton.
