Marti Hand, nurse-artist
I am a painter and registered nurse.  My work explores the intersection between art, science, nature, states of health, people and the healthcare industry.

Although I am curious about many things, I am fascinated and inspired by science, nature, books, music, skyscrapers and people.  That said, the creative process for my work usually begins with one of the following situations: a visual image persisting over time, an idea compelling me to act by researching the concept, a dream, a significant event or defining ‘ah-ha’ moment.  All of these states urge me give them physical shape and color.

Painting, for me, is a love affair with color, alchemy, texture and fluidity, its boldness and subtleties, its ability to place one in a contemplative, sad or excited mood, and its infinite uses.

With a background in critical care nursing, healthcare management and data analytics, scientific knowledge combined with extensive clinical experiences serve as a rich pool of imagery, creativity, and thought for my work.  My academic studies include an RN from
Muhlenberg School of Nursing, and MPA with specialization in healthcare administration from Rutgers University.  I am a Board Member of the Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia (WCAGA), and member in the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International.
