Martha D'Art, Painting, New Zealand.
Martha D'Art (pseudonym) is a Bay of Plenty artist working mostly with acrylic on canvas, specialising in realistic rural scenes as well as abstracts. She is essentially a self-taught artist although credits some of her skill to a good art teacher at secondary school and a year at the Waikato Technical Institute under the guidance of an enthusiastic Fine Arts tutor. Martha describes herself as a 'reclusive hillbilly', living on a small farm in the hills between Tauranga and Rotorua. Her work hangs in cafes, galleries and offices throughout the Bay of Plenty.
