MEET THE ARTISTS & MODELS
Artist: Janet Martinez (Texas)
"I graduated with my Associates degree in Art in August of 2019. I have always loved art and more especially what it does to people. It’s my way of escaping reality. I am a mother to 3 boys and in my spare time I make art. Sometimes for profit but more than times than anything it’s just for fun. It started out as a hobby until people wanted to pay me. I am still not comfortable charging because it takes the fun out of it. Also, so many people have done great things for me throughout my life so I feel like this would be my way of paying it forward, if allowed. I currently am unemployed so I have time that I could use to help someone else. After all it’s art and that’s what I was born to do, to create and to use my God given talent for the greater good."
