Marti's art reflects the tropical ambiance of the pan-Caribbean, the exotic mysticism of the south Pacific, with the infusion of European flavor. There is often a hint of the intricate curves of New Orleans ironwork, Art Deco geometry, Byzantine Mosaics, Chinese watercolor brushwork and Japanese woodblocks.

ART
Marti's versatile creative styles allow her to work in various sizes and mediums. She enjoys creating large, colorful, abstract paintings along with smaller pieces and hand-printed Wood Block Prints using archival inks and paper. Her Artworks have a huge appeal due to her outstanding use of color and composition. Her market venues are boutique hospitality industries, business lobbies, restaurants and other public spaces to private residences and collections. In addition to direct sales, Marti creates commissioned art work by collaborating with private collectors, high end design stores, interior designers, corporate art consultants, healthcare industry art buyers, and architects.


FABRIC & WALLPAPER
Many clients have requested custom textiles such as fabrics and wallpapers to compliment their artwork. Artfully coordinated design groupings and color patterns make it easy for clients and designers to develop a custom room or design package. Marti will work with you or your design team during concept development, create your custom design,  follow through by manufacturing of ensembles and art for the rooms, and providing you with the printed fabric or wallpaper.
