Agnes Bernice Martin was born on a farm in Macklin, 

Saskatchewan, Canada, in March 22, 1912.

She had three siblings. 

I can remember the minute I was born.
I thought I was a small figure with a little sword and I was very happy.
I thought I would cut my way through life victory after victory.
Then, they carried me into my mother and half my victories fell to the ground.
