INSTRUCTOR | Wendi Schneider is a Denver-based visual artist whose painterly photographs illuminate a deep reverence for organic forms in the natural world. Born in Memphis, she holds an AA in art history from Stephens College in Columbia, MO and a BA in painting from Newcomb/Tulane in New Orleans. She turned to photography in the early ‘80s to capture models to reference for paintings. Missing the sensuality of oils, she began layering glazes on her photographs to create a more personal interpretation. After she photographed, designed and produced the award-winning re-creation of the 1901 Picayune’s Creole Cook Book for The Times-Picayune, she moved to New York, where she photographed nearly 100 book covers and was a major contributor to the original Victoria Magazine. She moved to Denver in 1994, and after several decades of photography, design and art direction for clients, she recently returned to fine art photography.

Gilded vellum photographs from her current series States of Grace have been exhibited in a solo exhibits at The Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, Galeria Photo/Graphic in San Miguel de Allende, MX, and the A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX, upcoming at Mr. Pool in Boulder, CO, and in group exhibits in more than 70 venues including A Gallery For Fine Photography, Panopticon Gallery, and the Berlin and Barcelona Foto Biennales. Wendi's work has been featured in Photographize, Blur, Diffusion, Lenscratch, B&W Magazine, Silvershotz, Adore Chroma, and as a Rule Breaker on Don't Take Pictures. A Critical Mass finalist in 2017 and 2018, Schneider has been honored by the International Photography Awards, the International Color Awards, the Spider Awards, the Gala Awards, the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards, and American Photography, among others. She is represented by A Gallery For Fine Photography in New Orleans, Galeria Photo/Graphic in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Catherine Couturier Gallery, Houston, TX, and is a board member of the Colorado Photographic Arts Center.
