An academic painter from Vitoria, Spain. Enrolled in the New York Academy of Figurative Art (NYAA) MFA program and graduated in 2002, and then studied at the Water Street Atelier with Jacob Collins.
The technical expertise, the considered compositions, the exceptional treatment of light and the human form are evident and much appreciated in Martinez’s work.
It has the ability to recreate a dream world where magic and fantasy are part of reality.
The quality of her has been recognised internationally; she has been commissioned by Lucasfilm Ltd. to take part in an international project on Star Wars Visions.
