Eight years ago, Susan Schneider began a career as a full- time artist after retiring from 25 years working as a certified public accountant. She is inspired by the abundance of natural beauty that can be found around the Ozarks. “I don’t have to leave my yard to see the mountains, wildlife, or beautiful sunsets,” she says. Schneider also 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, gemstone and sterling silver to complete her work. As she weaves the beads into her work, she prefers to use off- loom and herring bone stitches. As for her painting, she uses acrylic paint to create images from her memory, and of the world around her. She has created one of a kind custom paintings that range from small canvasses to large murals, and outdoor walls.
Schneider earned a Bachelor of Art degree from Barat College in Lake Forest, IL. She has three lovely daughters and two grandsons. Her artwork can be purchased at the Arkansas Craft Guild & Gallery in Mountain View, or appointments with her can also be scheduled by calling 870-467-5704.
