As a former art educator, Josie T. Schwarzli spent 35 years developing art programs at the elementary and high school levels. Today she pursues her love of painting as she travels to broaden her scope of subject matter. Most often she is inspired by her rural surroundings and her love of nature.
Known for her versatility of style, bold in colour, knife and brush strokes, Josie’s acrylic or oil paintings make strong statements reflecting her feelings about the subject. “If my paintings can create a pleasant, comfortable sense of déja vu for the viewer, then I have found my audience and accomplished my aim”.
Her work can be found in private collections in Canada, USA, Germany
