Artist/Printmaker Marti Schmidt combines ancient art forms with modern impressionism and adds texture, images and silhouettes that evoke a style distinctly her own.

Marti’s art reflects the tropical ambiance of the pan-Caribbean, the exotic mysticism of the south Pacific, with the infusion of European flavor.
The latest modern artwork with it’s exotic imagery and bold approach to color, Layers upon layers of intaglio etchings and paint with a peek underneath that will draw the viewer into her paintings and leave them with the feeling of having been to far away places.
Her Latest works are influenced by art sabbaticals to France reflecting the texture and colors of the French countryside, the city lights of Paris and the ancient caves of Pech Merle.
There is often a hint of the intricate curves of New Orleans ironwork, Art Deco geometry, Byzantine Mosaics, Chinese watercolor brushwork and Japanese woodblocks. Her color palette is often the reflection of the flora and fauna found in
the natural setting her Northwest Florida home and studio.

Marti has over 40 years of experience in art, design, woodblock printing etching, silk-screen and various dye and resist techniques, including Batik.

Batik is the process of layering molten wax, dyes & pigments to create imagery, color & design.
