Marti Miller Hubbell

A fifth-generation Californian, Marti Miller Hubbell illustrates her life and her ranching heritage.  Homesteaded by her great-grandfather in 1882, the ranch she grew up on is still operated today by her parents and her brother. 

A lifetime of firsthand experiences enables Marti to authentically portray her western subjects. “While I hope that my passion for the West and its inhabitants is evident, I give equal importance to the honesty and accuracy of my paintings.  Nothing is contrived.  These are scenes from my life.”

A general art class in high school made Marti realize that art was her calling.   That dream was postponed while she raised a family and worked full time as a legal secretary/paralegal.  She was finally able to “retire” from the law office in 2002 and pursue her lifelong dream of capturing the ranching lifestyle in her artwork.  Marti also helps her husband in their day-to-day ranching operation.  

Marti works primarily in colored pencil and oil, but she also uses acrylics and graphite.   Her artwork has appeared on the covers of several magazines and been featured in various publications. She has participated in several shows, including Cowgirl Up! Art Show, the Cow Palace Art Show and the Buckaroo Art Roundup, where she was awarded the Buckaroo Heritage Silver Spurs award.
