About My Business Janelle Schneider is a painter and CG Visual Effects Artist for film and television. A native of Portland, Oregon, Schneider received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from PNCA with a major in Graphic Design. She was awarded with "Best of Design" in the Faculty Choice Show in 1997 and the "Outstanding Thesis Award in Graphic Arts" in 1998.

Her passion for painting began in early childhood when she was given oil paints, brushes, and canvas, and she began to paint imaginary worlds to escape into. She loves Nature, and draws inspiration from color, light, and dreams. She is interested in liminal states - possibilities that exist “in between”. She loves the times of day before sunrise and right after sunset, those numinous few minutes during which the sky holds the light. Her paintings often combine waking and dream realities.

Areas of Expertise Schneider contributed 14 paintings for the "Suit of Wands/Stars" for the group project The Science Tarot received the Maker’s Faire Editor’s Choice Blue Ribbon in San Francisco, 2010. Schneider has exhibited across the San Francisco Bay Area, including shows at the O’Hanlon Center for the Arts in Mill Valley, the Joseph P. Bort Metro Center in Oakland, the Olive Hyde Gallery in Fremont, and the SOMArts Cultural Center in San Francisco.
Professional Affiliations Her works are held in private collections in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Norway.
