Sculpture and printmaking allow the artist to study the nature of these animals. The texture of fur or feathers, the way light shines on antlers and horn, the artist presents them in unconventional portraits and with minimal color to convey the character and diversity of what she sees.
Marsha Schuld is a multimedia artist working from her studio in southern Saskatchewan. A lifelong artist, Marsha came to art as a career through all of her other jobs and interests.
Marsha is mostly self-taught, but has also formally studied art at the University of Saskatchewan and art programs at Red Deer College and has attended numerous classes and workshops in a variety of mediums over the years.
This diversity is reflected in her works of art, which range from painting to drawing, sculpture, glass painting and handicrafts. She received an unrivaled education from the experienced teachers at the Royal School of Needlework (RSN). The result is one proudly deserved Certification with merit of the people who embroider the queen’s coronation robes. It is indeed a great honor to be included in this elite group of seamstresses.
Her works of art have been shown in solo and group exhibitions and have received numerous awards. Her work is in corporate and public collections in Canada and the United States.
“I firmly believe that we are part of an integrated planet. Nothing exists without affecting all that the earth is. It’s not “environmental awareness” or “conservation” that drives me, although for me these things are the inevitable result of a fulfilling life. The environment around me has always aroused in me strong emotions and equally strong devotion. The basis of my work over the last 3 decades has been the near, which determines my daily life and my personal vision.
Alberta and Saskatchewan is a region teeming with habitats that require patience, time and attention to detail for their treasures to be unveiled. So I’m looking. Closely. With my work I want to make a convincing argument for the importance of wildness. It’s not enough to simply tell people it’s important – they need to be taken to a new level of understanding. I want my work to question, surprise, enchant, and convince the viewer that what they see is worthy of respect, protection, and honor.”
