The lure of painting has lead Marty Caldwell all her life,
All her life, Marty has enjoyed painting and creating art. Her gift was apparent since childhood. She used her artwork to help earn income by selling her creations at craft fairs and art shows. Over the years, Marty has been asked to paint for all types or organizations and on all types of surfaces. She has literally “left her mark” all over town as she has been commissioned to paint murals for many of the businesses and families in her area.
This is just the beginning to Marty’s story as her artwork has begun moving in a new direction. In 2006 she attended her first ever painting convention “Creative Painting Convention – Las Vegas ” she eagerly signed up for twelve classes! Marty has since submitted and been accepted to teach at many national painting conventions and is proud to say will be teaching in “Creative Painting Convention-Vegas” in 2009!
Marty also has a “real job” as a result of painting on the outside of a local business. She was basically interviewed for a job that has turned out to be a perfect fit for her. She was offered and accepted a position with Liberty County Juvenile Probation using her art to help build self esteem in kids, along with data entry and general clerical duties. She thoroughly enjoys passing her love of art and painting on to the kids.
Looking for inspiration everywhere! Marty's dreams of traveling, teaching, and meeting many of her art idols are becoming a reality each day as new opportunities comes her way.
Exciting achievements by Marty has been:
Winner of Delta Creative Challenge 2006

I am an artist with art in my heart and soul. Who now is finally getting to live her dream of teaching, creating, traveling and sharing with many new friends on a daily basis. My love is canvas painting, decorative, whimsy, and mural painting. Of course if it stands still anything is fair game!
