ABOUT THE ARTIST
Molly Schmid brings to the world of art a fresh gift. Though raised in a home suffused with classical painting, music, and literature, her desire to paint emerged only with maturity. Though undoubtedly touched by the work of her father, the artist Richard Schmid, she steadfastly pursues her own style and outlook. Her work has been commissioned throughout the United States and Canada. In addition, her work is part of the permanent collection of the State of Florida, as well as private, corporate, and museum collections.
A New Englander by birth, but a resident of northern Florida, she excelled academically at Florida State University graduating Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Fine Art. Her emphasis is on classical, representational oil painting. Her subject matter includes portraiture, still life, landscapes and wildlife.
Molly currently lives in Tallahassee, Florida with her son, Ian. In addition to motherhood and painting she also acts as Executive Vice President for Stove Prairie Press, an independent publishing company founded by her father.
