"Martiesian is seeking to communicate the joy that she finds in her own personal vision of nature. There is no formula; each painting emerges only after a long, solitary process in which the artist often paints and scrapes away, paints and scrapes away again. Martiesian says, 'On any given day, you will find me deep in negotiations with cobalt blue and permanent rose.' "
