Artists Profile

I'm a Hoosier girl hailing from Indianapolis. I retired from pharmacy and moved to Bradenton because it is the Spring Training site of my husband's beloved Pittsburgh Pirates. Luckily for me, it is also the home of miles of beautiful beaches, colorful shells and spectacular sunsets.

Approaching retirement, I realized that my "bucket list" was very shallow. It only contained 2 items. I wanted to learn to play golf; a work still in progress, and I wanted to take art lessons in water coloring. Good fortune was with me again when a newly found friend told me about the Manatee Art Center. I enrolled in my first class 4 years ago and have been a student since. Not only did I discover watercolor, acrylic, dye and yupo methods of painting, I also discovered my love of intense color. I believe the intensity of the colors I choose reflect the spirit with which I lead my life.

I am a member of the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society. I was honored by the Apopka Chamber of Commerce when they purchased one of my paintings to hang in the foyer of the Apopka City Hall. More of my work can be viewed on my website at http://www.martismixedmedia.com/ .
