David Marty has made the Pacific Northwest his home for over thirty years. David’s artistic career began with graphic design and illustration. After owning his own successful design business, his love of painting resurfaced, of which he has increasingly become known for is rural landscapes.

David attended Art Center College of Design and Biola University on California. He has participated in workshops with the Plein-Air Painters of America and Scottsdale Artists School and has studied with Scott Christensen , Matt Smith, John Budacin and George Strickland.
David’s work has been juried into Oil Painters of America, C.M. Russell Art Auction, National Western Art Auction, Salon International and Arts for the Parks Top 100 exhibits. David is a member of Oil Painters of America and American Impressionist Society.
David and his wife reside in Edmonds, Washington, have five children, and three grandchildren.
