She draws and paints the elements of pattern found in landscapes and under the microscope, linking the grandeur of nature to the simplest of life forms and celebrating correspondence between the two. Martha's use of natural forms is the basis for her work. During her BA work she studied Dutch 'Vanitas' still life paintings and this interest has led her to photograph elements of life under high magnification using advanced microscopes. Detailed examination of specimens creates an enhanced view of reality, emphasizing the pattern of life. Her works are contemporary still life pieces interpreted from her photographs of real specimens.
