About

Welcome to MARTHA ARGELIA--a break away from the mundane. 
Stoop by artist Martha Argelia
Martha Argelia, artist and writer based in NYC.

My mission:

To bring our sonic culture into the present moment and marvel at all its beauty, uniqueness, and comfort.

HELLO!
I'm Martha Argelia.  I create most of the artwork and write most of the stories you see here on MarthaArgelia.com. 

 

I'm a Dominican-American native New Yorker. Growing up, I was surrounded by the vibrant energy of art, food, music, and storytelling. These elements continue to be my deepest source of inspiration.

I was the founder and editor of lifestyle blog, Lela Luxe. After it became syndicated to Tyra Banks' TypeF.com, contributed to various national publications such as Haute Living Magazine, The HBO Blog, El Diario NYC, and several others. 

Now, I'm back to writing on my terms.

 

Please enjoy and stay a while.  Read my blog, flip through my art (I sell prints), and check out my latest Spotify playlist or book I'm reading.  I have loads of stories...and thoughts--I daydream a lot.

 

I am not really on social media, but if you would like to connect, send me a message here or follow me on Instagram.​ You can also sign up for my newsletter which is short, sweet, and full of great beats. You can also find my portfolio here.

Pick up my book, DAYDREAMS: MANHATTAN, on Amazon.

And thank you! Thank you for your support, for visiting, sharing, staying, shopping, and for your messages!

Peace,

MA

P.S. I'm also the baker behind these delicious oatmeal cookies.
