Born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and educated in Europe, Canada, Latin America and the United States, American artist Marta Whistler has developed her own unique style as a painter and sculptor. Her paintings feature bold color use combined with striking manipulation of surface texture and a powerful feeling of movement in her abstract works. In her paintings she shows what one critic called her "complete mastery of line and form." Other critics have praised her ability "in all the styles in which she works, to combine beauty of color, line, and composition with subject matter that evokes emotion in the viewer," and state that Whistler "has mastered a method of viewer involvement I have seldom seen matched."
The recipient of awards and citations for her work and the subject of several scholarly articles, Marta Whistler has seen over 500 of her works placed in private, corporate and museum collections in the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, South Africa, and South America.
