Biography of Lynne Schumacher        I was born Toronto, 1950 and started painting at an early age. I studied commercial art at Central Technical School under Doris McCarthy before turning my attention to landscape painting. Many hundreds of hours were spent in the Northern Ontario forests researching, sketching, photographing and painting my subjects. A considerable amount of my childhood was also spent in Nova Scotia where I developed a love for the sea and the Maritime way of life.       My previous work was based on close studies of trees, their many textures, moods and the effects of the various seasons upon them. I developed a great love and respect for nature and painstakingly applied paint to canvas to capture a startling realism and a boldness of colour and texture. My landscapes show the wonderfully varied beauty of the Canadian land.       I started exhibiting in 1973 at the Arts-in-the-Parks and then subsequently the Markham Art Show, Carling’s Art Show, Toronto City Hall and many other annual group shows in the Toronto area. I have participated in the following art sales events:   Toronto Art Expo    Kempenfest (Barrie)    Muskoka Art Show    Junction District Arts Festival    Distillery District Arts Festival    Burlington Art Market    Credit Village Marina Art Show    University of Guelph Art Exhibition    Ottawa Art Festival    Riverdale Art Walk    Buckhorn Fine Arts Festival    McMichael Volunteers Art Show and Sale    The Artist Project Toronto    Headwaters Art Festival    Arts on the Credit        My paintings will be found enhancing numerous collections by both private and corporate collectors throughout Ontario, across Canada, the United States, England, Germany and China.       I have received various letters of commendation from noted Canadian galleries. I have been written up in the Toronto Globe and Mail, the Mississauga Times and the Brampton Guardian. I have won first place awards in various art competitions.       In addition to landscape painting, I have expanded my horizons to portray the rich diversity of our community in the people and their colourful cultural contribution to the Canadian mosaic.       My paintings operate on many levels involving form colour and place. They aim to visibly document my thoughts and try to express my vision, pulling the viewer into another world. Lately, my artistic visions have taken on a more abstracted quality, experimenting with different media and allowing me to develop new ideas.       I am a member of Beaux Arts Brampton, Colour and Form Society and Ontario Society of Artists. I am also a participant in the Art Gallery of Ontario Arts Rental programme, the Art Gallery of Hamilton Arts Rental programme and the Arts Etobicoke Rental programme.       My recent entries to juried shows include:                   Beaux Arts Brampton various shows in 2006 - current              Colour and Form Society Juried Art Shows 2006 - current              Colour and Form Society Two by Two traveling show 2007, 2008              Etobicoke Arts Group Juried Art Shows 2005 – 2011              Franklin Carmichael Open Juried Show 2012              Lakeshore Arts Juried Art Show 2006 - current              Neilson Park Creative Centre various shows in 2006, 2007              Ontario Society of Artists Juried Art Shows 2008 - current              Peel Juried Art Show – 2004 – 2008  Society of Canadian Artists Open Juried shows 2009 - 2012              Uxhibition 2009 - 2014              Visual Arts Mississauga Juried Art Show 2005 - 2011       My web site can be found at:
