Anji Marth was born in the early 1970s in coal country, then lived in Philadelphia in her teens. She later moved to the Pacific Northwest. She learned as a child, to paint and draw from her uncle, David Borghi, whose work can be found in the Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. From him, she picked up creative freedom, and a willingness to try new things.
She has worked in a variety of mediums and passed through several stages of style and expression over the decades. Her tattoo work is known for its botanical and arboreal content. Other notable works include “Spider Monkey”, (2013) an assemblage, “Neanderthal Toothache”, (2005) a gestural oil portrait, and “Picking Season Ends”, (2011) a landscape in oil. Her current works are large-scale watercolor, abstract pieces referring to the pandemic.
