Dear Grandmother

Drawing My Dreams

Do you recall your dream? In this series Martin tries to capture her dreams in the form of words and lines.


Large scale drawing commissions with major brands in the US and overseas.


The work of Shantell Martin is a meditation of lines; a language of characters, creatures and messages that invite her viewers to share a role in her creative process. Part autobiographical, and part dreamlike whimsy, Martin has created her own world that bridges fine art, commercial and the everyday experience — conversations, objects and places.
