Getting to Know Marti

Marti Leroux’s enchanting paintings of songbirds, perched in abstracted backgrounds, take the soul on an otherworldly journey between the heavens and earth. She distinguishes her own style through this blend of abstract and figurative elements. The stylized backgrounds, bright color palette, and celestial light give Marti’s paintings a fantastical feel. Whether finches or chickadees, she renders each bird with an ornithological attention to detail. She often surrounds the small birds with golden haloes that give the paintings a hazy, out-of-focus quality. Though the forms in the background are abstract, they invoke the shape of blossoms or boughs on which the songbirds can land. The result is a harmony of form and color that balances the canvas and offers the sweetness of music or a heavenly morning.
