Martha Oakes is an artist and textile designer based in Sonoma, CA. She has been painting since she was old enough to hold a brush and have always been drawn to creating abstract, yet versatile patterns that translate to other media. Starting a textile line just made sense to her. Much of her line is a reflection of the landscapes she has lived in and encountered. She enjoys observing small details of nature, whether it be a shell she found on the beach on Martha’s Vineyard where her parents live, or a eucalyptus leaf on a trail outside her house in the Marin Headlands.
