Artist Martha J. Wallace Passed Away on December 12 at 68

Arnold, CA...Martha J. Wallace passed away following a short illness on December 12, 2017 surrounded by her family and friends at the age of 68. Born in the Bay Area, Martha spent her youth in Castro Valley. She studied art in high school and college and began painting in watercolor in 1975. Martha, and her family settled in the Arnold area in 1977.




Martha was a highly accomplished professional artist. She has worked in many art mediums, including pen and ink, acrylics, collage and water color and has studied with many well-known watercolorists throughout her career. Martha viewed her work with watercolors as an ongoing journey and her work reflected her many interests and life travels. Martha often shared with others, “Every day I get to do something I love.” She was an artist who was always learning and growing in her art while at the same time serving as an inspiration to others. Martha’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and her paintings are displayed in many private collections all over the world. Her paintings have earned her many accolades and awards. Martha was also a talented teacher who taught private classes to children and adults in her Murphys studio beginning in 1982 and has served as an Artist in the Schools in Calaveras County since 1989.

Martha’s many talents and joy for life had a powerful impact on so many lives...her family, friends, students and community alike. She is survived by her husband of 47 years Scott Wallace and sons Jesse Wallace and his wife Julie Wallace, Joshua Wallace and Zachariah Wallace, her sister Beth Fellman and brother-in-law Erick Fellman and grandsons Nicholas and Jacob Wallace. Her passion for art was only surpassed by her deep love of her family.

Martha's beautiful art and her joy for life will be missed by many. A celebration of Martha’s life will be announced in the spring.

The elementary school children loved her so! She was the highlight of their spring art lessons and their parents always awed at all masterpieces at Open House! You will be dearly missed, Martha. You taught us how to look at the everyday objects or scenery and find beauty. You knew just what line to begin the first stroke of an artpeice as well as the last. RIP

    Martha was a Castro Valley High School friend of mine, and her sister, Beth was a friend of my sister. The Allen home was a warm and fun place of welcome. It was so great to see Martha at our 50th HS Reunion this past September!

      I had no idea Martha had gone to Castro Valley High School, even though we were friends (obviously not that close) since 1991, when I moved here and became part of the Art-Op Gallery in Murphys. I was Castro Valley HS Class of '60, although, due to moving, I graduated from Carmel High School (Carmel-by-the-Sea), Class of '60. Martha was a great artist, and gave a lot to the community and children of Calaveras County. She was a gem. Dick James

A talented artist, Martha was one of the sweetest, kindest people living in Ebbetts Pass I had the pleasure of meeting so many years ago. Rest in peace, Martha.

    Martha was a super person. She taught not to draw just two mountains because that look like boobs. We played softball together in the days when it was so much fun.

        Reba Rises were a special drink at The Whiskey River. Almost like a tequila sunrise. We had them in a gallon container for every game. We were better at drinking than playing.

Martha was one of the biggest inspirations in my life. She taught me about all forms of art, poetry and other forms of creative expression. She was a huge influence for me and created most of my happiest memories, She loved teaching art to children and thank you to a prior poster regarding the mountains looking like boobs, I remember with a huge belly laugh that story long ago. Many happy moments with Martha. she will really be missed and remembered often with love!! My other mother and the better half/ best friend to my mom.
I love you Marfa.... little joke my kids will get!

to have known her all these years. Martha's infectious laugh and beautiful smile will remain with us. She was the welcoming committee at Pinebrook "pond" and we will especially miss seeing her on our first visit there this year. Martha is a good reminder to all that we should enjoy the time we are given. Our love to Scott and her boys. There will never be another person like Martha!
