Beautiful model added to my collection! Creative and well done. :) Also excellent communication, given the shitty weather lately and possible delays in delivery. Still arrived on time thanks!

Pictures do not do Martha's work justice! This lady is an amazing, talented artist who created an impeccable rendering of my friend's horse for a gift. Her coloration, shading, and alteration skills are enough to put Breyer out of business! On top of it all, her customer service is A+ and you won't find a more kind, passionate Etsy owner willing to please her customers and do what she loves!

Beautiful little horse, thank you so much! She arrived just in time for our first snowfall here on the 9th and I had to take a quick picture. :)

About

The View Behind The Workbench

I've joked about customizing from a shoebox before, but in all honesty my art tends to take over the house! Every so often I corral it back onto the workbench, but the chaos invariably spreads.

But half the fun is getting messy and I love trying out new mediums and tweaking old methods. My goal is to have every item in the Etsy shop broken down step by step so folks can play along at home if they like!

Have any questions about how to make or paint something? Drop by my Facebook page and ask and I'll be happy to help! :)

I have officially abandoned my chase of a profit margin, so all of my prices are now based around materials and listing fees. I realized I really enjoy my IT day job (which keeps the bills at bay) and I love making art more when I'm not trying to make money from it. So instead of trying to make a living, I'm just trying to keep the art horde stocked.

    Hello out there and welcome to the madness! :) I'm the painter, sculptor, caster, writer, etc. that is the source of all the artistic chaos in this shop. I love trying out new things so my listings can bit a tad eclectic at times. www.Martha.net
