Marta Staudinger grew up in Washington DC and discovered her own methods of self-therapy and meditation through collage-making and tracing when she was 8 years old. While completing her Masters Degree in Curatorial Studies in Barcelona, Spain she realized that those early methods were the initial reactions to her intuitive understanding of her own creative self and natural ease as a post-production artist. Her process is a form of inner meditation through creation. Marta is drawn to representations of authentic, dramatic, and transparent human emotions and connection to nature. Her heritage and experience, from America to Austria, Spain, Italy, Brazil and Cuba, have produced artistic influences that revolve around the release, appreciation and conflict of emotion.
