    About the artist

    Carol Schmauder is a graphic designer that entered the world of fine art in 1988 after taking watercolor classes from Stan Miller and MaryAnn Figgins. She was intrigued by the spontaneity of the medium and painted mainly in watercolors until 2016 when she began painting in acrylics as well.

    Her professional life has led to participation in over a hundred exhibitions; both solo and in groups. She has paintings in collections nationwide and has won numerous awards.

    Because she "doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up", Carol experiments with different styles of art. She has experienced great success with her Shattered Reality series and is best known for this fun style of starting with a traditional subject and creating sections of warm and cool colors playing off of each other. Dark and light sections also add life to these paintings. She also enjoys painting in different forms of abstract art as well as traditional forms.

    Carol resides in Spokane, Washington, USA with her husband Glenn.  They have seven children and fifteen grandchildren.

    The artist says of her work: "Painting brings me much peace and happiness. If my paintings bring joy to the viewer then I have accomplished my goal."
