Artist's Biography

Schneider’s art is characterized by graphic simplicity and conceptual undertones. A native of Madrid, Spain, Schneider studied at The Arts Student League in New York and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. She became a member of NextFab, a makers-space in Philadelphia, where she works with lasers, LED lighting and other technologies which she incorporates in her artistic practice. Previously, she completed a Law Degree and an MBA, disciplines that now inform her work.

Drawing and experimentation have always been central to her artistic practice. She marries art and technology using basic elements of drawing and simple lighting techniques.

Her work is part of several corporate collections – CubeSmart, Price Waterhouse Cooper, AIMCO, Rhino Investments, Raynes Lawn- Hehmeyer, Lincoln-Harris and private collections in Europe and the United States. She has exhibited at the Barnes Foundation (group exhibit), Rowan University, Pennsylvania State Museum, Philadelphia City Hall, Philadelphia downtown galleries as well as Art Prize in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Samara Gallery in Houston, Texas. She just completed a large project for the Alterra Property Group decorating 13 floors of their One City Property in Philadelphia.
