Martha Lever has been painting in various mediums for over 25 years but for the past 8 years has painted exclusively in oils. As an oil painter, she leans toward a bright palette but experiments with many different combinations of colors and textures, which leads to her impressionistic style.
Martha started her artist journey as a calligrapher and lettering artist over 35 years ago. In her desire to create interesting, colorful, and textural backgrounds for her calligraphic letterforms, her art expanded into the mixed media genre using watercolor, acrylics and collage. She has taught various workshops in calligraphic lettering and watercolor painting at Reddi-Arts and in other locations in the southeast and currently has 12 ongoing online classes.
Throughout the years, her art has been shown in various galleries, exhibits and museums. For Martha, art is an ongoing journey of experimentation, color, loose, expressive brush strokes and, most of all, fun.
