Martine Johanna was born and raised in the Netherlands and has studied at ArtEZ the Academy of fine Arts in Arnhem, obtaining a Bachelor and a Master degree. She has exhibited in multiple Solo shows in the Netherlands, Europe and the United States.

The works of Martine Johanna are figurative, in the realm of new contemporary realism, and embody the inner workings of "the female chimerical house". A symbolic house that explores the mental fluctuations of an archetypical female roaming a predominantly male infrastructure while trying to experience her own narratives within the social fabric she is part of.

The painterly works in acrylic on linen and panels are made in an optimistic prismatic color spectrum reminiscent of Fauvism and carry the atmosphere of Mid Century idealism. Cut-throughs and light prisms distort the female protagonists in elucidating dynamic surreal compositions, making an exploratory play between abstraction and narrative depiction.
