Welcome to Missy Schwartz Art
I am a born and bred “Jersey Girl” that attended The Kansas City Art Institute and graduated with honors from Rhode Island School of Design. I parlayed my sculpture major into a 25 year career as an award winning designer in the toy industry. I retired from the toy industry in 2001 to return to my fine art roots by painting and working part-time in the interior design field.
My Inspiration as a Painter
My work reflects the threads that have woven through my career. The love of color, large scale, texture, nature, animals and fascination with form all stimulate my work. In particular, I am astounded by the “architecture” of flowers. My obsession with animals/birds challenges me to capture their spirit as well as colors that others might not see.
