Amy Schneider – Middle School Judge
Artists Bio: Mixed media Artist, Amy Schneider, received her BFA from Massachusetts college of Art where she was awarded an Art School Associates Award. A graphic designer and visual artist, she finds the interplay between the two an exciting mix and thouroughly enjoys sharing all she discovers with her students at Vita Art center in Ventura. Amy has always had a love of creating, especially from used and about-to-be discarded junk. After taking a collage workshop in 1999, Amy’s painting process grew to include a variety of media such as acrylic paints, oil pastels, found papers and her own photography. Amy’s work can be seen in a variety of shows in Southern california and in private collections. . Artists Statement My art is a personal exploration of the subject and the materials I use to create the work. regardless of whether the subject matter is my own personal fact or fiction, my mixed media paintings evolve from what I see and feel around me in everyday life. I let the process of making each piece guide me to it’s conclusion. each layer determines and guides the next. My paintings are a conversation between giving and taking in which I hope, you, the viewer will find a bit of mystery upon careful observation.
