After a fulfilling career in Television broadcast journalism and corporate communications Martha credits her move to the Okanagan Valley, BC and later to Georgian Bay, ON as the motivation behind the shift from interpreting her world through writing to drawing and painting.
“When I paint, I’m totally immersed in the moment and lose many hours focused only on my canvas the marks I make and the feelings they evoke. Beneath layers of texture and colour a story on canvas begins to emerge; apart from any intention on my behalf, often a mystery,
and quite arresting in its intensity. I’m very grateful for the ‘stories’ I’m able to create and the connections and pleasure they bring to others.”
