"The connection of movement in art and nature is the stillness of a feeling expressed through the abstract wording and painting in fine and thoughtful artwork. My mission is to bring my students' and clients' visions to life in my unique style & methods."

"A childhood memory in creating oil painting and dancing that has kept me going with art and calligraphy till today. It's that memory of movement and flow, an expression of self-emotion, freedom of feeling, a dance on a surface. It is a memory I loved once, fell on and will love forever."

- Martha
