My work is a narrative recording of my family and friends. I strive to relate hope, prayers and humanity of  all people.

Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, painter Marta Sanchez is deeply inspired by traditional Mexican folk art expressions. Marta Sanchez is recognized primarily for her retablo paintings, an offspring of traditional Mexican prayer paintings. These soulful works on metal capture the deepest held wishes and dreams of her subjects, as if the artist were lighting a candle in prayer for her subject.
