Margaret Carter Martine received her MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design. She is inspired by land concerns, individuals who have risen above difficult situations and finds great joy in painting on non-traditional surfaces.

Martine has taught in both the public school system and the higher education system, most notably teaching at Appalachian State University, Caldwell Community College and currently, Caldwell County Public Schools.

Martine's desire to document human struggle and land development issues can be found as themes in several of her series paintings.

Pull Toys is a series of large sculptural toys, realized to recognize people who have made positive contributions to society - Margaret Sanger, Sojourner Truth and President Carter.

Mattress Series deals with the nightmares and dreams of war veterans and their emotional struggle. Martine uses re-claimed mattresses as the canvas for this series.

Preservation Landscape is an ongoing series, documenting the beauty of our region before it is lost to over-development.

Martine's work has been displayed throughout the South East, including Atlanta, Saint Simons Island, Savannah, Asheville, Winston-Salem, Blowing Rock, Lenoir and North Wilkesboro.
