Reverse Painting on Plexiglass Demo  – Martina J. Skobic

Martina was born in Croatia and lived in several European countries before moving to the United States in 1995.  Her formal education and professional background includes law, business administration and higher education.  The importance and practice of art continued throughout those years. 
Martina has spent most of her free time studying painting with both international and national distinguished painters and teachers.  She recently transitioned from a traditional and representational painter, who used Renaissance painting techniques, to a contemporary abstract painter who uses different materials.  After her retirement and move to Arizona, she works as a full-time artist.
Martina’s work hangs in collections throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico, China, and Taiwan.
