Artist Statement


My art is how I explore world around me. I see so much wonder there and things I want to understand. Capturing their likenesses in pigment is how I attempt to do that.

I especially like the small things such as a snail or a frog. I feel they are often the overlooked in our busy world. I hope people will take a moment to notice these amazing things and find a connection they didn’t know before or reconnect to something forgotten.

Her paintings are characterized by the use of everyday people, animals and objects in which recognition plays an important role. Hope Martin currently lives and works in Columbia, Missouri.
