My name is Michelle Schneider, and I'm a Christian, wife, mother, and artist specializing in painting Custom Home Portraits that personalize your home decor and showcase family memories.

I've doodled, sketched, painted, and cut and pasted for as long as I can remember. Drawing and painting are my true passions in life and bring me so much joy. Spending time creating every day seems to restore my sanity and bring calm back into my life. As an introvert by nature, painting is my way of connecting to the people and world around me in a meaningful way.

College was where I really started finding direction in art. I fine-tuned my drawing skills, learned painting and printmaking for the first time, and found a real community of other creatives. I received my bachelors degree in art with concentrations in drawing, painting, and illustration in 2009 from Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL. 

Now I sell custom artwork online to people all over the world. I live and work from my home studio in central Illinois.
