BIO

Schneider’s work is about the physical layering of images and the figurative layering of place, iconography, and cultural and social references.   A native of Madrid, Spain, Schneider moved to the United States where she studied the Art Student League of New York, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and NextFab – an art lab- in Philadelphia, where she now resides.  Previously, she completed a law degree and an MBA. 

Drawing and experimentation have always been central to her artistic practice.  From the early bull paintings and the newspaper and cloth clippings in her abstract work to the LED drawings, Schneider is always searching and moving forward in her artistic practice. 

Her current body of work uses digital manipulation, laser-printing techniques and LED lighting to create simple urban narratives from architectural views that reflect the contrasting realities of cities.  Her work hangs in corporate and private collections in Europe and the United States.  Some of her works are now in the permanent collection of CubeSmart.  She has shown her work at the Pennsylvania State Museum, Philadelphia City Hall and the city downtown galleries.  She was selected to be part of Diálogo365, in 2011 and in 2012 and the Wawa Corporation Annual Exhibit in 2013.  She also has exhibited at Art Prize in Grand Rapids, MI.  Some of her recent shows include Simulate/Permeate at Rowan University and the Main Line Art Center.

Her upcoming show at Samara Gallery in Houston, TX.  will open on April, 7  2017.
