This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ursula Schneider (b. 1943)

"Her artworks include pastel drawings, paintings, small-scale sculptural paintings and woodcuts, working on one medium at a time. These processes complement and enrich each other by stimulating a fresh approach and allowing for experimentation. Drawing from observation in the landscape has been the basis for the work. The focus is on seeing the inherent qualities of the observed and to find the appropriate translation for the medium used." (

She attended Kunstgewerbeschule in Zurich and Keramische Fachschule in Bern and holds an Undergraduate Degree in Ceramics from Switzerland.

In 1968 she moved to the United States and graduated in 1972 with an MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute.

She lived and worked in New York from 1980-2004 and taught painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, Cooper Union and Sarah Lawrence College.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Her work reflects her pervading sense of space, and she has made several trips to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to observe spatial relationships between mountains, rivers, and tundra. She simplifies or distills these shapes into soft blues, greens, and grays. A special exhibition of her work was held fall, 1988 at the Braunstein/Quay Gallery in San Francisco.
