Martin only works in black and white adding she did not plan the work in advance.

“The inspiration in the work here is just Denver the city. It’s being here, talking to people, it’s soaking up some of the atmosphere and just letting that unfold into the work,” said Martin.

Martin says she should be finished with the piece by the end of the week.
