Tonya is a proud North Carolina native who grew up in the western mountains of the state and received her medical degree from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem before settling in the Lake Norman area. She spent nearly twenty years in her first career with a successful private practice that specialized in obstetrics and gynecology. Tonya’s passions include horseback riding, photography, and spending time outdoors with her family. She strives to capture and reflect the harmony and balance of the natural world in her artwork.
Nancy Martin uses a variety of unwanted & discarded items as the base for her paintings. She frequently paints on glass, mirror, metal and wood. Her pieces are bright and fun, making you feel happy when you look her work. Visit her in Studio A to discuss custom art for your space. You pick the vibe and she does her thing. If you love it, buy it. If you don’t love it, don’t buy it. Getting to know the artists is the best part of the Lakeside Artists Studio Tour!
Nancy developed a love for creative activities at an early age, and her fascination for glass started with curiosity. Glass is complicated, beautiful, surprising and sometimes very frustrating. As a glass artist she is drawn to the never-ending learning process that is a given when working in this medium. Her designs are inspired by many factors (heat of the kiln, flow of the glass, color, composition, texture to name a few), but mostly by light. Light makes glass have an energy and life all its own and will constantly evolve as if it’s almost alive. Every piece is unique and has its own story.
Painting helps Pooja meditate and brings her closer to the beauty of the natural world – from colorful florals to the vastness of a landscape or waterscape and everything in between. Her goal is to define and point out the beauty in every minute detail of this great expanse under the sky, while conveying a feeling of peace and joy to the beholders of her paintings adorning the walls of a beautiful home.
