"Martha Hinson is a native Tennessean with boundless enthusiasm and imagination. In her own words, ""I'm as squirrelly as a bed bug, nutty as a fruitcake, far out and out on cloud nine months of the time."" Although she has had no formal art training, Martha has developed her skills on her own. ""Mostly by trial and error, and that's a method you don't forget,' Martha says. She truly has made her style and techniques all her own.
Martha creations - painted rocks, clever clay toadstools, and driftwood designs first received attention from craft fair devotees. She then turned her talents to oils. Several of her works appear in municipal buildings and were even chosen to be sent to Japan as a representation of Tennessee art. Also, in 1987, Martha was commissioned to produce a series of historical portrayals of the Nashville area.
Martha's hobby is golf and she is on the course every chance she gets. She also loves to travel and learn about other cultures.
Martha's approaches her art as she does with every aspect of her life -- with joy and zest which is transmitted to everyone around her. "
