Breze Schmitz, I loved art when I was growing up but didn’t truly dive in until my senior year of high school. It began to blossom when I took dual enrollment classes at SCAD my senior year. Which then propelled me into art school starting at the University of Mississippi and obtaining my BFA at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. A highlight from my education was my time studying in Italy. My horizons were literally expanded and I learned SO much within the world of art.
My inspiration has a heavy draw from nature, time, and music. The work itself is fueled by exploration! One reason I love working in so many mediums and with a variety of subjects.
When I went to school for Drawing and Painting I began creating jewelry as a side outlet and absolutely fell in love with each individual medium. I enjoy each method of creation and the push it creates to keep me challenged.
