My name is Anja Martin. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I am an artist creating acrylic paintings for modern Interior. Born in 1988 in Bavaria, Germany. Since 2018 I’m living in the US with my husband.
Art is my passion ever since I am a little girl. I worked with several mediums like charcoal or watercolor but I found my passion in acrylic paintings. I continuously try out new techniques & mediums, influenced by perceptions & ideas or my emotions in the moment. To me art is a way to both express and challenge myself. Working on my modern, contemporary paintings allows me to express my feelings in a pure, tangible form. I can block out the world around me and let emotions become colors & textures.
On a canvas I enjoy working with several layers of color & a variety of texture paste to create a more dimensional look.
On paper on the other hand, I prefer the simplicity of color - creating & playing with compositions of contrasting color themes.
“A painting is not just an object. It’s a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul, a small piece of the painters life.”
