Marta Dortion earned a BA in Art Studio, emphasis in Painting from the University of Kentucky. Her painting process involves scraping layers of Liquitex acrylic paint onto canvas with a squeegee. She seeks to feel small on the Earth, to understand her place in the vast order of life and time, to feel relevance in the midst of nature’s enormity. Family and land are elements that run deep in her heart and artwork. Kentucky is a commonwealth of great variety and beauty. The colorful and changing landscapes have played an important role in the art she creates.
