Marti was born in California and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in fine arts from California State University, class of 1978.
She has travelled and sketched in Europe, Great Britain, Mexico, Canada, the USA, and East Africa. She spent a year living abroad in the Netherlands. For most of the past decade, she's been lliving and painting in Governors Harbour, Eleuthera, Bahamas, where her work is infused with the spirit of these little islands she calls home.
Recent paintings are acrylic on canvas, or wood and water color on 100% rag paper.
The images are inspired by nature, primitive and folk art, and sometimes include elements such as driftwood, sand, shells, and other found objects.
Her gallery/home is near the Laughing Bird Hotel in the midst of Governors Harbour.
