Martha Wallace

Born in the Bay Area, Martha spent her youth in

Castro Valley. She studied art in High School and

College and started painting in watercolor in 1975.

Martha and her husband and children settled in the

Arnold area in 1977. She was fortunate enough to

spend 8 years studying watercolor with Dorner

Schueler. She also has studied with various well

known watercolorists over the years, each giving

her new insights into this exciting medium.


Martha has worked in many art mediums, including

pen and ink, acrylics, collage, and watercolor. She

now works basically in watercolor and collage. Her most

recent works include the beauty that surrounds her

in this area and the areas that she is lucky enough

to travel to.


Martha has exhibited in the Calaveras and Tuolumne

counties of northern California. Her paintings are in

many private collections all over the world. Martha

exhibits her work at Art on Main in Murphys,

Timeless Home Gallery in Arnold, and

Copper Town Art Center in Copperopolis. She opens her

private studio in Murphys to the public at the end of

September for the Open Studio Tour.


Since 1985 Martha has been involved in giving private

art lessons to children and adults in Calaveras county.

She also is hired by many schools to give watercolor

lessons on an hourly basis. Martha feels very fortunate

to be making a career in something she truly loves.

Martha continues to live in Arnold and has a private

studio in Murphys.
