About Marta

Marta’s professional qualification is Bachelor of Interior Design from the University of Arts in Berlin. Marta migrated to Australia in the 1983 when she worked as an interior architect in Sydney and later in Brisbane.

With her passion for art and design, she was always experimenting with painting, drawing, pastels and watercolour, and between 2010 and 2011 she completed a Certificate IV and Diploma of Visual Art & Contemporary Craft.

Marta is now an accomplished artist and teacher, running workshops and exhibiting in several solo and group exhibitions throughout South East Queensland.

Marta is best known for her series of Rock Paintings, and more recently, she started to experient in a newer abstract style that combines fluid acrylics with traditional painting methods. In addition to creating her own body of work, Marta also accepts custom commissions.
