Martin Carryer grew up with wood as a hobby; carving and experimenting from a very young age. Growing up in rural Taranaki with links to the mountain and central hills he developed a keen interest in native flora and fauna.
He began his adult life as a farmer with a strong side interest in woodwork. Although having no formal training he made furniture, developing increasingly contemporary one-off designs for commissions. He always imagined that later in life with more time he would turn his attention to carving and sculpture.
