A plein air artist from rural Boone County, Martha Daniels enjoys sharing her love for nature through painting and art. Her background in wildlife conservation and nature education peeks through the paintings. Prairies are complex and fascinating habitats – the subject for many of her works. Martha sees art as a way to capture moments of beauty in the fields, woods, and rivers, then share those colors and forms with others as a connection to the outdoors. To her, art is a way to absorb the soul-soothing and spirit-calming aspects of the natural world.
