She lives in her studio in Briskeby and works daily as a contact teacher. Martine's art often has hints of gold and bronze - it gives an almost metallic effect that reflects the light in the room. She creates depth to the images with deep, unique textures and strong contrasts. The motifs are abstract or abstracted animals and people. Her art has a sensual and feminine expression, while also giving a feeling of roughness and masculinity.
