Martina Yeon, born in 1962, has lived in her adopted country Spain since 1991. Starting to paint as a child, Yeon’s official training in the art began at the age of 13. This training carried her through middle and high school where she discovered her love for still lifes. After her early training she attended the Korea University from 1978 – 1984 where she earned qualifications to become a fine arts teacher, thus enhancing her passion for painting. During this time she was selected to participate in several different collective painting exhibitions in Korea.

From 1986 – 1989, Yeon continued to progress her painting abilities by studying with a Korean master of classic Dutch still life painting.

After settling with her family in Spain, she gained love and appreciation for the Spanish masters and began to model her paintings after the works of Goya and Velázquez. Following her move to Spain, she began to study the chromatics of paint and drawing, which allowed her to begin painting in a more contemporary realistic manner.
