Meet the Artist, Martha Koelemay
Primarily self-taught with generous help along the way from an artistic aunt and an excellent teacher for a few years, Martha has painted all her life. She was blessed with supportive parents who saw to it that she always had the materials and space she needed to develop her passion for art. Years ago in Louisiana, Martha had a studio and painted full-time-specializing in pet portraits done in pastels as well as works in oils. Then life got in the way and she has only recently begun to paint again. The beautiful area where Martha now lives gives her plenty of inspiration. Her preferred medium is oils and she enjoy painting the beauty of nature, whether it is a single flower or a sweeping landscape.
