Martha Ordonez was born in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. She learned to crochet at the age of 10 years old. Over the years, Martha has learned to make earrings, purses, dresses, and more. Martha loves to create. She learns a variety of patterns and technique through participating in a weekly community class offered by the H*Art Gallery. Martha feels that the class has encouraged her to keep on learning. Martha has been very active in our H*ArtWorks program and has recently been painting with La Paz, working on collaborative public murals that celebrate Chattanooga's Hispanic community and heritage.
