About Marty

Has God ever surprised you? Well, He did me! I’ve been into right-brain creative activities through high school, college and in business never imagining a possible “passion” for painting to be included in the mix later in life. And then ”this” … on “that”….. painting domestic animals and wildlife with acrylics on native Arkansas sandstone. With a lot of encouragement from my husband Larry, family and friends the “vision” began!

Each piece of stone is hand picked, according to color, size and depth, thoroughly washed and treated with a poly-acrylic sealant. Then the size appropriate image is drawn on the stone and painted with care. It is then twice treated with a spar urthethane UV spray and dried.

The image determines the size and shape of the stone in many ways. Whether it be a commission of a beloved pet or one of God’s creatures that strikes an emotion within us, it will fit within the “perfect” confines of the earth stone and become a one-of-a kind piece of original art. It is my privilege to share this blessing of God's talent with you.

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

My salvation and my honor depend on God, He is my mighty rock, my refuge.

-- Psalms 62:5-7
