HUNTSVILLE, Alabama - Martina Svoboda defines multitasking.

The Czech Republic native is a wife, mother to a 3-year-old boy, volunteer, blogger and entrepreneur. Most can attest it’s a heavy, sometimes wearisome workload, yet Svoboda manages her hectic schedule with poise, modestly claiming “I’m a midnight worker.”

Amid such a bundle of responsibilities, it’s difficult to believe she has time for a hobby – but she does.

Svoboda moved to Huntsville about three years ago from Hawaii with her husband due to his career. Then two years ago, she approached Huntsville Art League and asked if she could not only exhibit her handmade jewelry, but teach a range of jewelry classes for high school students and adults.

If that wasn’t enough for the uber-ambitious Svoboda, she volunteered to redesign Huntsville Art League’s website and assumed the role as publicity chair – her area of expertise.


Martina Svoboda is also in the current Ascribing Artists Exhibit on display at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment through the month of August.
