Schwartzenberger, Mary Beth


When work is going well, there is nothing like it – your heart and soul sing.

My work is informed by nature and the land around me.  Yosemite is a rich visual bank for me, as it has been one of the constant destinations in my life.  I carry so many rich visual memories of the vistas there that they intuitively appear in everything I create.

I work on a handmade Japanese mulberry paper called kyoseishi.  I paint the paper first and then embellish the work with hand embroidery.  The resulting image is a unique marriage of paint and fiber.
