Hi, I am Terri Schmitt, a Cincinnati painter and designer. I began painting in 2013. I create most of my original artwork in a studio on the 5th floor at the Pendleton Art Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. I work in oil and cold wax, acrylic, and I do some mixed media collage using hand-painted torn paper. Paintings are always available for purchase here at my studio. I look forward to meeting you in person.

About the Artist

Here you will find my newest paintings that examine the interlocking shapes of light and shadow. I first had the thought of doing this series, sitting outside in the morning sun drinking my coffee. The length and color of the shadows really caught my attention. What if that kind of light were passing over ordinary objects, or through translucent dishes? Wouldn’t those shadows and projected colors create some interesting abstract compositions? So I gathered colorful objects from my kitchen and spent several weeks taking photographs. Painting these images while it was cold and gray outside was a welcome treat.

From a distance these could be abstract non-objective paintings, but up close, you see the details of fruits and vegetables, linens, dishes, utensils. Using basic principles of composition, I am creating something that draws you in to look deeper. The paintings are multiple layers of oil paint and cold wax on birch wood panels. Most of them are 18x24 inches, one is 30x40, and I have several small color sketches available.
