Marty Husted is a mixed media and member of Studios on High Gallery. As a child, Marty’s favorite thing to do was play in the woods, draw, dream and allow her imagination to transport her to fantasy worlds and far-off places. She received her B.F.A. in illustration from CCAD. After illustrating many award-winning children’s books, Marty is now inspirited to interpret the visual symphony she observes in her natural surroundings. She starts with a limited pallet and explores texture, light, pattern, and color to redefine relationships created by nature. By emphasizing individual elements with her assemblages, she creates a new depth and synergy, enticing the viewer with a unique interpretation of her vision.
BrickBox Artists, specially selected outside local artists, and open Brickbox Studios to walk through.
