University of Guelph – Fine Art BA
Art’s Sake – Toronto

Over thirty years working as a visual artist, Martha has produced drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations.

She has designed sets and costumes for Canadian Stage Company, Necessary Angel Theatre Company and Desrossier Dance Theatre.

As a founding member of Figure x 4, the Artist Group initiated annual figurative exhibitions featured in tandem with dance.

Martha’s installation work includes an 80′ regional mural in the Bookshelf Cafe, Guelph On.

An important continuing body of work, Survey the Valley, focuses on the animals found in the Don River ecosystem. When Martha began this body of work she had no idea that she was connecting to the legacy of Naturalist, Earnest Thomson Seaton. It was at this point she began to create her ephemeral wire sculpture forms.

She teaches painting at the Avenue Road Arts School in Toronto and Grand Manan New Brunswick in the summer. Martha also helped found Ensemble, assisting emerging artists develop exhibition experience.

Martha is the Gallerist at White Wall North.
