In the 1920s and 1930s, Martin studied at the Ontario College of Art under J.W. Beatty and Franklin Carmichael, both mentors who personally instructed and encouraged her. At Beatty's funeral in 1941, she met the artist Peter Clapham Sheppard and the two remained devoted friends and sketching companions until his death in 1965. Together with her husband, Langton Martin, also a talented draughtsman, the couple enjoyed extended trips around the world as well as an active social life that included, among others, A.Y. Jackson and Elmer Isler. Dedicated above all else to her art, Martin became an accomplished painter, watercolourist and printmaker, and had solo shows at T. Eaton Co.'s College Street Fine Art Gallery, Casa Loma, and the Guild of All Arts. Her paintings were also featured in the Royal Canadian Academy exhibitions from 1945 to 1947. One of her works is in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
