Anne Brawer Schwartz is a dedicated abstractionist. While pursuing a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Oregon and further studies at the Gemological Institute of America, Schwartz always maintained a painting practice, which she kept up during her 25-year career as a couture jewelry designer. The legacy of her expertise as a designer is apparent in her abstract paintings and their considerations of detail, drawing, design principles, color, texture, and refracted light.
Today her canvases are represented in collections around the world. She frequently works with art consultants and interior designers, placing her work in residential, commercial, and hospitality venues.
