My art career began 50 years ago in the United States Air Force as an technical illustrator which lead me into the commercial advertising, graphic design and photography world for Fortune 500 companies.
Today, I have returned to the "WHY" I was drawn into the art field. “Expressing a feeling, an emotion, a snapshot in time.” I am now painting full time at my Sand Penny Farm Studio with my beautiful artist wife Nancy.
Hopefully, you will see the inspiration from Nelson Shanks, Studio Incamminat’s education in the tradition of realism principles in my current drawings and paintings.
I have owned and operated NSchmidt Design Studio for over forty years at my New Jersey thoroughbred farm—producing one-of-a-kind designs, mixed media, graphic art, and photography for numerous corporations, non-profit art organizations, state agencies, small businesses and private commissions. I have been selected in numerous juried shows and juror's choice awards.
I am an avid foxhunter with my husband and love photographing nature, equestrian events, horses, landscapes, seascapes, still life and creating mixed media as well as modern and distressed graphics.
