Martin Grelle lives with his wife, Terri, and their children near the small, Central Texas town of Clifton, just a few miles from where he was born. Rich in beauty and history, the area has become a Mecca for artists, which is one reason why Martin Grelle has spent his whole life there. Many of his closest friends are artists. They gather to see each other's work, exchange ideas, and just "shoot the breeze." Grelle treasures the camaraderie among these artist friends and the rare opportunity it affords him.
Martin Grelle's work reaches far beyond his Texas home conveying the spirit, drama, beauty and vastness of the American West. Whether painting a Native American in a dramatic setting or a working cowboy on the range, Martin Grelle captures the essence of the West in his historically-accurate, picturesque, peaceful, yet compelling images. Martin Grelle enjoys the Cowboy Artists of America's (CAA) trail ride each year and manages to spend some time occasionally working cattle with local friends. Grelle is proud of the Native American part of his ancestry and studies diligently to portray their culture accurately and sensitively. Martin Grelle is able to take even the mundane daily task and elevate it to a new level in each painting.
