About Marta

My name is Marta. I’m Cuban, and I love words and food. I talk with my hands. I always wear perfume and red lipstick. I love to entertain. I have naturally curly hair. I take photos every single day.

Word art posters to make you happy

I started my blog, My Big Fat Cuban Family, in 2006 because I wanted to have a place to write and curate my own life stories and to have a place to share my adventures in cooking classic Cuban food for the modern American kitchen and document my family’s life.

Here's the link to my blog: My Big Fat Cuban Family 

Keeping an online public journal is an interesting thing. While I wrote mostly for myself and my family, I quickly found lots of people who connected to my stories and my experiences. Throughout this evolution, I was constantly creating. I’m a graphic designer by trade and a few years ago I created a cool ‘subway art’ surf poster for my husband. My friends liked it so much that I started offering to create custom poster art for them, and that’s how Marta Darby Designs was born.

Custom Word Art Posters

It was a few years ago that I took the concept of subway art and Cuban food and married them to create my Cuban Food Poster which I have now shipped to homes and businesses all over the country. I’m quite proud of that.

I’m still busy maintaining my blog, but I’m also continuing to create. I always have ideas and am constantly sketching and creating. I love having a place to share my work with others who love food and words and art like I do.

My original poster and word art is sold here and through my Etsy shop. I am always happy to work on custom pieces for special events. Contact me so we can discuss your custom project.

You can also sign up for my newsletter on the home page of my blog. I promise not to send you lots of emails.

Thanks so much for dropping by the studio. I hope you’ll ‘Sit long and Talk Much.’
