Marti Nash's Profile

About

Marti Nash is a professional artist who lives and creates artwork and soap on the emerald green shores of Lake Havasu.

Marti is originally from North Dakota, where she received a BS in Visual Arts from North Dakota State University. She has been living in the Mohave desert creating artwork for 16 years.

As a soap-maker, Marti created her first batch of soap 6 years ago after receiving a book store gift certificate for her birthday. She purchased soap-making books with her certificate, read information on the internet, and diligently took notes and sketched out a plan. After making her first batch of cold-processed soap, she was hooked! Her first few batches were shared with family and friends, and then sold by word of mouth. Within a year, she was selling through local craft shows and had created a website.
After years of experimenting with different types of soaps, she has settled on Castile, or olive oil based soaps. Her primary soap contains 77% olive oil, coconut oil, and jojoba. It is a long-lasting gentle soap with a luxurious lather. She also makes a fabulous 100% hypoallergenic olive oil soap known as Spanish Castile. A true 100% olive oil soap has a lower, lotion-like lather. When you add a bit of coconut and jojoba to the mix, you get a rich luxurious lather, even in hard water.
Along with her soap, Marti creates pottery soap dishes, teapots, whistles, covered vessels, and various other items.
