| portrait of an artist // martha rich |

Here is the second installment of our Portait of and Artist series. This lovingly quirky piece is by local Philadelphia artist Martha Rich. To be honest with you, 16 months after this project started I can not tell you how many pieces my husband has collected total, there are so many. I do remember this picture arriving in the mail, and the excitement my husband had in showing me. There is so much I love about this and I think you too will love the playfulness of Rich.

I am honored to share a little bit more about Martha Rich…

A Philadelphia-based commercial and fine artist who currently teaches at University of the Arts, Tyler School of Art and Fashion Institute of Technology. She has been featured in a wide realm of publications due to the varying subject matter she creates; Rolling Stone Magazine, Bon Apetit, Natural Health and LA Times to name a few!




Martha’s beginnings with art were a leap of faith taken after starting a family. She graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design, her path was well chosen. 

I feel truly lucky to have this little piece in our collection and hope you take the time to learn more about Martha Rich
