Shonet Lambert Martin

Muncie artist, Shonet Lambert Martin, typically a fiber artist, has taught art for many years in the Muncie area and is a Master Teaching Artist for Very Special Arts of Indiana.  She has taught classes at the Muncie Center for the Arts, Minnitrista, and St. Mary’s school.  She holds a B.S. in Art Education and a Master’s degree in Art from Ball State University.

Martin most recent artistic undertakings include ceramic and collage work and center around her Floating Woman theme. Reminiscent of Native American, or even Aztecan art, these faceless forms seem to speak of the Spiritual Feminine. She is quick to emphasize the role color play in her work as well.

What ever image I am working with, color is equally important.  I try to create an energy between strong, bold colors to evoke an emotion.
