Marta's Achievements & Awards

BACKGROUND & EDUCATION

Marta was born and raised in Olomouc, Czech Republic. After graduating from college, she studied graphic design at the College of Applied Arts in Brno, Czech Republic. Marta emigrated to Canada with her family in 1984, and for the next 25 years she held a graphic design position in the advertising/ publishing field. During the past 14 years, she has run her own company, specializing in art direction of magazines. Marta’s extensive background in graphic design brings a strong sense of composition to her art.

Marta has been creating art for over 20 years. At first, it was a peaceful escape from her demanding professional work. Now that she lives on a centuries-old farm near Tweed, Ontario, with her partner and numerous orange cats, her full focus is on art. She became a full time artist in 2008.
