Talent abounds . . .

Marta Urban is a self taught lettering artist from Western Pennsylvania.
Interested in lettering and the written word from an early age, she was drawn to studying 
and creating illuminated manuscripts.
This eventually led her to research Pennsylvania German Fraktur.
Marta found the naive style and sincere expression of fraktur most intriguing.
This began a desire to create authentic fraktur using essentially the same methods as 
were used in the 18th. Century works.
Over the past 27 years, Marta's work has been featured in national publications as well
as retail venues including museum shops, galleries and other fine art markets.
