Marta Francine Handwoven (Booth R-3)

Marta Francine at Armadillo Christmas Bazaar

Marta Francine is a textile artist who currently works and resides in San Antonio and Austin, TX. She received her BFA in Visual Arts and Communication from Universidad Veritas in Costa Rica, where she was born and raised prior to relocating to Texas. Marta currently explores ways to break away from the repetitive aspect of traditional macramé knotting and frame loom weaving, in turn developing her own patterns and textile construction. Her approach to this art form stems from her passion for nature, texture, and color; as well as a deep curiosity about organic fiber movement and soft sculpture techniques.
