Dani Schmidt

I am a fine artist from Contoocook, New Hampshire. I attended UNH Manchester, majoring in European History with minors in studio art and American Sign Language.  After college I continued my art work whenever I could make time.  Recently, I made the leap to become a full time artist.  My work varies in medium – I explore oil, acrylic, mixed media, colored pencils, and ink.  All pieces echo a love for New Hampshire's lush environment. Stylistically, my artwork has a surrealist feeling about it, with bright and vibrant colors, bending the world around into a sort of dreamscape. Art is my life's work and passion; creating is a vital necessity.  I work from my home studio in Contoocook with my two rescue dogs (who love to help make art).
