Marta Collings is an award winning watercolorist who specializes and excels in wine country landscapes. Having lived in Napa Valley since 1986, Marta has a true understanding and appreciation for the Napa Valley and picturesque setting she calls home. Weather permitting Marta paints her watercolors on location outdoors, preferring “plein air” painting to studio painting. This allows her work to absorb and portray all of the natural elements surrounding her at that very moment. Nature’s nuances of colors from the soothing blue sky touched by whimsical clouds to the riches of the earth and its vine laden fruit are her inspiration and subject matter in most of her art.

Marta’s style of painting stems from her love of color, painting “wet on wet” allows her to layer colors creating a translucent like quality found in all of her paintings. Her exciting watercolors are given a richer depth by contrasting values of light against dark through glazing and by her saturation of paints.

A formal education in art from San Jose State University and Chico State University provided the foundation for Marta’s professional career. She has perfected her skills over the years through constant practice and hard work. When not creating stunning watercolors, Marta spends time with her family and friends pursuing outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing and mountain biking. A passion for painting and her love of family and friends continues to give Marta an appreciation for life and all its beauty.

Her talented work has won her numerous awards in juried art shows and has rewarded her with one woman shows at various locations throughout Napa Valley and beyond. Today, Marta exhibits her work exclusively at North Bay Gallery located in the wine country at VMarketplace in Yountville in the heart of the Napa Valley and also on the plaza in Sonoma, California.

Also, available: Original watercolors, giclee prints in large (22 x 30), Medium (15 x 20), or small (8 x 10). visit for more information.
