When Martha Zausmer received her bachelor of fine arts degree from Wayne State University at the age of 62, she began her long postponed love of working toward becoming an artist.


Martha is a visual artist working mainly in oil and watercolor, blending realism and abstraction. For her, the creative process is deeply nourishing, meditative and unpredictable. With determination she approaches her work, to that place where there is a sense of satisfaction and energy, where beauty and emotion unite with a visual and sensory impact; always loving the challenge that it provides.


Art has been, and always will be life changing and enriching for Martha. While painting, there is a mysterious sense of spirit, peacefulness, and joy the surrounds her and her work.
