Martin A. Bartels
An accomplished writer, journalist, poet, and artist, Martin A. Bartels defies traditional artistic and professional labels. His art explores rich textures and seeks a place in which the viewer and artist become mutually attuned to subconscious imagery. In addition to his work as an journalist and communications professional, he has run nonprofit organizations and in 2008 offered testimony before Congress on behalf of funding for public lands. He is founder of the blog/e-zine shemome.com.
