About My Business Janelle Schneider is a mixed media artist and 3D texture paint/look development artist for film and television.
Her passion for art making began in early childhood when she was given oil paints, brushes, and canvas, and she began painting scenes from the natural world and her own inner imaginary worlds; of the inner and outer worlds. As she matured and developed as an artist, her work became influenced by ideas within quantum physics, comparative mythology, cymatics, indigenous cosmologies, and depth psychology; and in the threads of the concept of Unified Oneness contained within all. Her artistic practice is grounded in the understanding of creativity as a gateway to the transcendent. She is inspired by the natural world, and the energy that underlies all things. Her more current works explore these subtle energies through and across a variety of subjects.
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.

She is currently represented by Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ., and a member of Society of Shamanic Practitioners
