Marblehead, Massachusetts artist, Martha Quigley, makes her living from the sea. Not fishing or lobstering, but instead she finds inspiration for her paintings from the colors of the ocean and the shore.
Martha has always felt a real connection with the ocean. She started painting seaside subjects from the time she picked up a brush as a young child. “I was born under a water sign and as a 5-year-old, I told people I wanted to be a mermaid when I grew up.”
