About the Artist

Martha studied Fine Arts at the University of Alberta in the late 60’s. Her main focus in art has been physical place and how we dwell in it.

This interest led her from Alberta to Vancouver, where she spent time painting the urban scene: alleys, run-down buildings, massive hydro structures. I loved the character, texture, and emotional feel of old places, imprinted by human occupation.

Upon moving to Courtenay six years ago, the first thing I noticed was the walk along the estuary. I didn’t know its history, but I was intrigued by its dilapidated industrial look, and the interface of nature versus structure. Visually, it was interesting, but I always wondered how something so unlovely could occupy the heart of the city.
