Cristel is a self-taught artist that developed her technique through the use of unorthodox tools, including knifes and self made brushes that allow her to create special effects.
Martha was born in Lima, Peru in the sixties, and spent most of her life in the capital. She is the sister of another renowned contemporary painter, with whom she shares her professional secrets.
Her work evokes the clarity and freshness of a watercolor. Her technique allows her to be prolific; however, she tends to go through "dry periods" quite often.
Although she recently started showing in the US, the acceptance of her work has been grandiose.
