Based in Spruce Grove, Judith Martin travels throughout Alberta drawing inspiration from the Canadian landscape. Working primarily in pastel, oil, and watercolour she envisions the land as a place that is rich in energy and narrative history, which she translates though a skillful balance of expressive brush strokes and complimentary colour palettes. Martin’s most recent series focuses on the waterways of Alberta, capturing the vitality of these rivers, lakes, and streams that are threatened by receding glaciers and current land use practices.
