Drive about 9.5 miles and turn left onto BC44, a well maintained gravel county road. Travel just under 1 mile and veer right onto Cabin Hill Trail. Turn left onto the first road on the left.

Four years ago, Susan Schneider began her full-time career as an artist, after retiring from working over 25 years as a Certified Public Accountant. She is inspired by all of the abundant natural beauty that can be found in the Ozarks. “I don’t have to leave my yard to see the mountains, wildlife, or beautiful sunsets,” she says. Schneider says that she feels a closeness to nature, and history that she has never felt anywhere else.
Schneider is a bead weaver and painter. She uses a variety of beads, including Japanese Miyuki, vintage, and sterling silver beads to complete her work. As she weaves the beads into her work, she prefers to use off- loom and herringbone stitches. As for her painting, she uses acrylic paint to create images both from her memory and of the world around her.
Schneider earned a Bachelor of Art degree from Barat College in Lake Forest, IL. She boasts a 20-year marriage along with a lovely daughter and beautiful grandson. Her artwork can be purchased at the Arkansas Craft Guild & Gallery in Mountain View, or appointments can also be scheduled.
