The Drybrush Graphics limited edition giclées by Marti Somers are taken from four of her paintings on panel. The surfaces of the panels are painted, collaged and integrated to form a subtle layering of images and words. Her genre is still life consisting of pitchers, flowers and fruit, grocery lists and birds; semi-abstracted objects from everyday life that suggest a story is being told.
Stanford University, the University of Notre Dame and the University of Utah have each commissioned one of her mixed media compositions. Several of the artistís paintings have been published as gift cards, including a recent publication titled Courtyards of the Westin designed for the Westin Palo Alto, California.
Marti Somers, a native Californian, received her fine arts degree from the University of Hawaii. Currently, Marti is a partner in Artefact Design, a Palo Alto graphic design firm, where she works as designer and illustrator.
