Marti Higgins is talented mixed media artist who likes to experiment with the relativity of color and how colors influence each other by proximity. She expose relationships in color by working in layers. Many under layers are not immediately visible in a given piece. These initial colors and shapes, however, ground the finished product by influencing colors yet to be applied and by showing up in glimmers and slices. She likes to include a surprise color which at first glance may seem incongruous but has a way of solidifying the composition. Her finished pieces are impressionistic landscapes and abstractions.
All of her subject matter is derived from her observation of nature, including her flower gardens. She is inspired by the sense of disorder, yet perfect organization, she feels when in nature. Her mediums are acrylic on canvas, acrylic and paper collage on canvas and encaustic.
