In contrast to my work as a performing artist which emanates from the depths of emotion, my sensibilities as a visual artist spring forth with playful vitality and buoyancy. Drawings and sketches take shape as free-spirited animate forms, radiating a sense of happiness, warmth, and comfort, while inspiring narrative. Recently, I began working in clay, creating sweet little Friends wearing night gowns. I pressed found objects such as buttons, crystals and beads into the clay forming eyes and noses. I then painted the works in soft, pleasing colors. I love hearts which often appear in my works as well. These pure, simple forms remind me of my youth, of soft Lullabies, of my Loving Family, of Hugs, of Kisses, and my earliest Sculptures - my toys. I hope these welcoming works will bring smiles to all who meet them and inspire and remind us to "Let There Be Love" and always to Keep Love in Our Hearts. x o x Martha
