About Me

About the Artist:

Koral Martin

“Nature has always drawn me, mostly because of its inherent beauty, a beauty I see manifest in both the serenity of its order and the excitement of its chaos. Too, it possesses unending variety, is ever changing, and offers wonderful surprises, at every step, along every path, and in every corner and crevice. When taking photographs I try to capture these qualities. 

Every work of nature, no matter how small, has a story to tell, a story that the casual observer may never see, never grasp. I try to make my photographs tell that story. I may spend hours walking just a short distance down a path, along a stream, or through a woods, examining at length everything from lichen and algae growing on a rotted log to pebbles lining a brook, unique reflections in the water, or saplings edging a stream, looking for the patterns, relationships, and interactions that are all around me, seeking to capture the line, form, light, color, and texture that are forever present in the works of nature. 

With my photography I try to draw observers in, so they feel they’re part of the experience and are aware of and interested in the story. Shooting at unique angles and using macro and infrared photography are some of the ways I bring life and story to my images. 

I love computers and the technical knowledge associated with them. I have worked in IT, and currently do web and graphic design. It seems I have always had a camera in my hand. In the last dozen years, as digital photography capabilities have advanced, I’ve been able to combine my love of computers and my technical knowledge with my photography. In my photography, I utilize primarily Canon’s professional line of digital cameras and lenses and Canon's and Epson’s professional printers. I’m experienced in all aspects of digital photography, including digital capture, digital darkroom processing, color management, printing, and presentation of fine-art prints, which I do both for myself and for other area artists. 

I’m also an experienced web developer and graphic designer and the owner of Koka Art Gallery, where I sell my photographic artwork and the artwork of many other local artists. I sell my works, too, at art shows around the country, and I’m a member of the Kansas City Artists Coalition, Joplin Regional Artists Coalition, The North American Nature Photography Association, The Society for the Arts in Healthcare, The Center for Health Design, Missouri’s Spiva Center for the Arts and Carthage Art Central. I feel strongly that there is healing in the beauty of nature, and I’m glad to be able, through my photography, to share that healing attribute with others in many different environments, from homes to businesses, and most specifically healthcare."

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
