Martha Pettigrew

Martha holds a BFA degree from the University of Nebraska with emphasis on painting and printmaking. Frequently attending workshops affords her with a path to self-discovery. Before embarking on a professional art career, Martha acquired skills working as a scientific illustrator for a number of years with the Nebraska State Museum. “I feel my experience as an illustrator has served me well on my journey as an artist.” Her move to become a professional fine artist began in 1990. She says, “It has been a wonderful experience and a very rewarding way to earn a living.” Concentrating on sculpture early in her career, Martha has recently found success drawing on her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree discipline with her paintings. “By creating art in both media, I find the challenge keeps my work fresh and exciting. I am equally at home whether sculpting or painting.”
