ARTWORK

I am an artist, a nurse, and a truthteller. The artist in me wants to express; the nurse in me wants to encourage healing; and the truthteller wants to put form to difficult universal truths. 

“Martha is open to considering new ways of working while drawing on past traditions.  As her art mentor, I hope to pass on the gifts I’ve received from my own mentors—Joanne Segal Brandford, Lillian Elliott, and Ed Rossbach.”

— Pat Hickman, Artist, Professor Emerita,

University of Hawaii

“Open and lively creations —instructing and healing for the eye.”

—Robert Jones, collector and former studio manager for Helen Frankenthaler
