Martin Scadgell was born in Sussex in 1950 and educated at Shoreham Grammar School. He studied law at Worthing College and was articled to RH Ellis before joining the Fine Art Department of King and Chasemore in Pulborough under Leslie Weller in 1970, where he ran the Paintings Department for three years with responsibilities for sales and valuations

Later, Martin opened, ran and financed The Crescent Road Galleries in Worthing, just down the road from the well respected porcelain dealer Geoffrey Godden. He relocated to the Mulberry House Galleries in Pulborough in 1978 before moving to the Isle of Wight in 1982 where he continued dealing in pictures from two Galleries and exhibiting at European, London and provincial Art Fairs.

During this time, Martin and his family also managed their own apple orchard, Afton Apples, which Martin describes as "A wonderful contrast to Art Dealing".

In 1994, Martin joined the then Phillips Son and Neale auctioneers and ran their Picture Department for the South and West of England from their Bath office; which was a complex engagement involving a number of local offices.

As Martin puts it: "I was rescued from that life of regional jet setting by Bearne's and the rest is history!"
