Since I was very young I was always drawing, coloring, or painting. I attended a local art college in the 70's when culture was a lot different than it is today or probably ever will be. The "flower child" culture helped me to expand my thinking; and my artistic abilities evolved into sculpture, painting, design, & sketching.
In the 90's I was privileged to work with a Native Shaman as an apprentice for 10 years and a Spiritual Entrepreneur and Psychic for 12 years. This has helped me develop my inner vision through meditation and dream-work and created a spiritual aspect to my paintings.
Today, my paintings are free form instead of controlled. They are created from visions seen in meditation and usually change while I am in the creative flow. I never know how the painting will end or what others will see.
Studied at Ft. Wayne Art Institute in Indiana in the 70's. Currently part of Indiana University.
Exhibited at Ft. Wayne Art Museum.
Currently exhibiting at Saachi Gallery in London.
"Every piece I create has started out completely constructed in my mind. Once the brush or sculpture tool is in my hand, a spiritual energy takes over and I create beyond my own abilities. I believe it is my spiritual training that allows this beauty to come through." Martina
Martina has been successful in teaching this technique in art to her students through meditation, drumming and relaxation. "Anyone with a love or interest in art can create a beautiful painting when open to spirit." Martina
One-on-one classes with Martina are available. Painting provides a unique opportunity to get in touch with Spirit. No experience in art is necessary.
One of my favorite paintings. Inspired by the recently discovered over 2000 year old stone Circle at Biscayne Bay in Miami, Fl. This painting was created entirely by spirit during the fight to save the Circle as a monument to the Native Americans who created the 22' circle inscribed with native symbols of the time. Wizard shows the many dimensions and alternate realities of the Universe.
