“Black and White II” by Deb Schmidt



Deb Schmidt is an abstract artist based in West Palm Beach. Her paintings and drawings vary in style and subject matter but are always inspired by personal experience. Her art can be characterized by geometric shapes and sometimes elements found in nature. Deb’s artistry started as a teen when she discovered her love of drawing. She is self-taught and has used painting and drawing as a creative outlet for much of her life. This is her first show in Palm Beach County. 





“Sticks” by Deb Schmidt




Deb tells The Rickie Report, “My work is non-representational and hopes to invoke a mood or emotion. I am inspired primarily by shape and texture rather than subject. My paintings are primarily acrylic on canvas and my drawings are ink on white stock”.  Deb also creates unique walking sticks and has been experimenting with watercolors. Her work is in private residences throughout the U.S., and her current work can be seen at her on-line gallery at
