Carol tells The Rickie Report, “My paintings reflect my love of color and my fascination with texture, and are often tied to some aspect of the real world. They begin as a flow of feelings, intuition and spirit. Rather than carefully controlling my paintings, I allow them to grow and emerge, suggesting their forms, which I develop by means of many layers of glazes.  Through my work, I try to delight the viewers’ senses and bring them joy. Many remark about the beautiful colors, telling me they love the softness and emotional quality in my work. It pleases me to know I have reached them.”

Maria tells The Rickie Report, “I started painting early in life, using first oil as a way of expression, followed by acrylic and mixed media. My academic formation has been completed with many workshops. I use brushes and sometimes the knife. My style, once classic and realistic has been much influenced by impressionism. In my constant evolution, abstract and expressionism have opened a new horizon and they are now part of my creative path”.

“Those Shells Are Awesome!” by Maria P. Martin

 

 

 

 

“Nature has always been a source of inspiration, which since my childhood has brought me much joy. It’s limitless forms, colours, sizes, textures and changing lights, inspire and thrill me. Born in Spain I have shared my life between that country, Canada and the U.S. and this has very much influenced my work. Sometimes I add the human shape in movement. Subject variety is important to my creative soul and botanicals add color to my palette. I want to transmit the joy I feel in my creations and I invite the follower to use his imagination to share with me this sensation of harmony and beauty, produced by art”.

Born in Madrid, Spain, Maria studied Fine Arts and foreign languages and started painting at fifteen. In Canada since 1966, she has completed courses in Fashion Design, Jewelry making and Interior Design. She has also worked in the fashion industry and successfully created a jewelry design and manufacturing company. Her creations have been distributed across Canada and the United States and her work has been often mentioned in specialized, as well as in popular magazines.

“Hold Me Tight!” by Maria P. Martin

 

 

 

A classic and realistic artist by formation, Maria is influenced by impressionism, using the brush as well as the spatula. She likes variety and abstract is part of her world now. Her love for nature is reflected in her work, where different shapes, textures and light are her sources of inspiration, trying to capture the feeling created by a particular moment in time and space. Her life is shared between Canada, Spain and the United States, which, no doubt influences her work. Her art has been commented upon and published in newspapers and magazines. She has been part of numerous exhibitions, Solo and Group. Honourable mention and a member of various associations, her paintings are found in England, Spain, Canada and the United States. Several of her works are reproduced and distributed by Ëditions Bégin of Québec.
