Martha Richler is a Canadian-born political cartoonist and is the daughter of Mordecai Richler, novelist and screenwriter. She was educated at Harvard, and by 1985 was drawing a weekly comic strip for the Daily Express, to which her father responded “I sent you to Harvard for this?”
Having started working as a political cartoonist in 1996, in 2003 Richler became chief editorial cartoonist for the Evening Standard, signing herself “MARF”. Since then Richler has published hundreds of political cartoons, and in 2008 began publishing online on the site PoliticalBetting.com. Richler has also worked as the editorial cartoonist for the Jewish Chronicle in London and the Jewish Quarterly.
In 2011 the Guildhall Art Gallery in London held a solo exhibition of Richler’s work entitled “City Blues: Cartoons on the Banking Crises and Recession”, which was the first exhibition of its kind at the gallery. Richler's work is also included in the public collections at the V&A and the Saatchi Gallery in London.
