"'MARTHA IS A SELF-TAUGHT ARTIST, BORN AND RAISED IN SANTA CRUZ. SHE IS GREATLY

INFLUENCED BY NATURE AND HER MEXICAN CULTURE- AS EVIDENCED IN THE NAMES OF MANY

OF HER PIECES. AS A CHILD SHE WAS ALWAYS DRAWING, OFTEN LOOKING AT NATURE BOOKS OR

CATCHING BUGS, BUT IT WASNT UNTIL AFTER SHE HAD HER SECOND CHILD THAT SHE PICKED UP

THE PAINT BRUSH AGAIN.

FOR YEARS, MARTHA HAS BEEN MASTERING HER EMBROIDERY AND EXPRESSING HER ART IN

THAT MEDUM. NOT TOO LONG AGO SHE FELL BACK IN LOVE WITH PAINTING AGAIN, UTILIZING

BOLD COLORS OF ACRYLIC PAINT AND JUST RECENTLY BEGAN EXPLORING NEW EXPRESSION AND

DIMENSION WITH WATERCOLOR

MARTHA'S LOVE FOR INSECTS AND FLOWERS HAS TRANSLATED INTO BECOMING HER MAIN SUB-

JECT, INSPIRING A RICH BODY OF WORK. BE SURE TO GIVE HER INSTAGRAM A FOLLOW AT

@FRIDAANDCACTUS FOR UPDATES ON NEW ARTWORK, PRINTS AND EXHIBITIONS.”
