Arts Walk Pick 2018
Mia Schulte creates brightly colored abstract paintings inspired by landscapes — many of which call to mind the majesty of mountain ranges, sea and sky — using mixed media including acrylics, charcoal, pastel, inks and watercolor.
Schulte was born in Turkey and grew up in a family that traveled and lived in many countries throughout Europe and the Middle East. Her careers have ranged from corporate work in Washington, D.C. to art teacher to full-time artist. Her art has been shown throughout the state since 2007. Schulte was selected as one of the featured artists for the South Puget Sound Community College exhibition Drawn to Abstraction: Four Artists, Four Visions.
Her work has been shown in the Washington Center for the Performing Arts, the Seattle Design Center, the Bellevue Art Museum, and the Tacoma Community College Gallery, as well as in galleries and exhibitions in Seattle, Bellingham, Edmonds, Bellevue, Yakima and other cities throughout the state. She was recently selected to be in a show at the Prince Street Gallery in New York City.
