Deborah Schneider was born in Vienna, Austria and lived in New Delhi, Toronto and Rome. While living in Italy she discovered her passion for painting. This passion manifested itself in taking lessons and attending exhibitions culminating in her decision to pursue a career in the arts. She graduated with an Associate of Arts degree from Colby Sayer College in New London, NH and received a Bachelor in Fine Arts degree in Interior Design from the Moore College of Arts, Philadelphia, PA. She continues to exercise her passion for painting. Deborah often seeks inspiration from the beautiful Adirondack Mountains including Saranac Lake and Lake Placid landscape which she visits annually with her husband Paul. She recently retired as Design Manager for Bassett Furniture in the Greater Washington, DC area. Deborah's art would beautify any interior in which it is exhibited whether residential or corporate. Primarily a realist oil and acrylic painter, her subject matter - while diverse - seems to almost always convey a true peacefulness in an impressionistic style. Her work can be seen in various collections.
