BIOGRAPHY

Martha Rich lived the typical, suburban life--until she followed her husband to Los Angeles, where, just short of a picket fence and 2.5 children, her average American life unraveled. Fate led her to a class taught by painters and brothers Rob and Christian Clayton. They persuaded her to quit the pantyhose, corporate world, leave her human resources job at Universal Studios behind, and become an artist full-time. She graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Her work has been featured in the Beck video "Girl," and the book "Sketchbook Expressionism," featuring artwork from her sketchbooks, was published by Murphy Design. Rich''s artwork has been shown in galleries throughout the U.S. and internationally. She is currently living in her hometown of Philadelphia (and part-time in Pasadena) and recently received her MFA in Painting from the University of Pennsylvania.
