Beate Scheller is a printmaker – the first printmaker to join our gallery as a member; and she is the second Scheller to become a member. Not a relative, but she shares the same last name as one of our glass artists, Jim Scheller. It’s such a small world.
Originally from Germany; Beate works with many types of printmaking including drypoint, etching, and lithography to name a few. She shares this about about her art..
“Experiences from many different countries have shaped my artwork. To see the world in different environments, in different time periods and with a global view is a constant challenge. With my memory (through mind or photographs) of former landscapes in European countries, but also the changes that happen every day around us, is one idea I transform into my work. The main influences of each piece, with a combination of lines, shapes or architectural components, are influenced through these experiences from nature and architecture. “
