Marti Bein has been painting since she could hold a brush and has taught the medium to artists from preschool to the
post-graduate level for over 30 years. She is a Native Nevadan who is continuously inspired by the surroundings of rural Nevada and by the children who often explore the high desert with her.
She received her Bachelors of Art degree from the University of Nevada, Reno and her Masters degree from the University of Oklahoma, Norman. Her work can be seen in galleries throughout Nevada and the west but when she is not out hiking, running, or watching baseball, she is most comfortable in the studio setting, teaching painting and making art.
