Martha Flores Studio is located in East Wenatchee but you can find some of her paintings and prints for sale at Wenatchee’s Two Rivers Gallery, 102 N. Columbia St.
Flores was born in Guatemala and grew up in El Salvador. She moved to the United States at age 15, spending more than two decades in the Los Angeles area. There, she earned master’s degrees in fine arts and counseling psychology. She moved to Wenatchee in 1992. She’s worked as an art teacher and family counselor.
She incorporates art therapy into her family counseling work, with the goal of bringing healing to the budding artists. She said poetry, theater, painting and sculpture are tools she uses to increase self-esteem, practice relaxation and “let the unconscious mind get in touch with the past.”
