Jane Schmidt is a landscape painter. She received her Master of Fine Arts in Painting from Arizona State University and her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the College for Creative Studies, Detroit, Michigan. Jane’s constant quest for beauty and inspiration takes her from the coast of Maine to the countryside of California, and from the mountains of Colorado to the lowlands of the Carolinas. Jane’ s landscape paintings are noted for their unique color palettes and energetic brushwork. ‘My subject is color’, explains Jane ‘and there is no better source for color than nature’. Jane has earned national and international recognition for her landscape paintings. She has twice been invited to exhibit at the esteemed Florence Biennale and has been selected to show at museums and universities throughout the country. Her work is eagerly sought by art enthusiasts and can be found in prestigious private and corporate collections.

“My landscape paintings originate from inward and outward experiences of nature. Based on observation and later on memory, my paintings connect the reality of what is seen to the realm of what is felt as I explore the edge between abstraction and representation. I call myself a colorist. Color is the soul of my painting.”
