Tinka Martell

Everything I see in my environment filters into my work

In painting I can express my life experiences utilizing whatever materials I chose to work with such as wood, paper, canvas and any recycled product I have. At times, I work "very small' on paper with copper leaf and ink, however, most often I work in large scale, three dimensionally, or on the wall.

Inevitably, after choosing the material to work with any preconceived or intended thought becomes irrelevant as the piece evolves.

 I usually prefer not to title my pieces, as I do not want give the viewer any preconceived ideas about what the is meant to say. We all have different experiences throughout our lives that, I believe, change how we may see each piece of art by any artist we view.
