Mardell Schuster studied
illustration and graphic design at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in
the early 1980’s. While being a stay at home mom and raising her three
sons she had the opportunity to experiment with many different mediums which included
watercolor, acrylic, oil and colored pencil. In 2002 she accepted a position as
the Marketing Manager for a small but quickly growing equipment maintenance
management company. Mardell has found colored pencil to be a very portable and
agreeable medium to work with while juggling a busy work and travel schedule.
Colored pencils have greatly evolved over the last 20 years and is the only
medium that involves both drawing and painting. Mardell currently resides in
Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband and five cats.
