Biography

Wanda Zuchowski-Schick was raised and still resides in Rossford, in Northwest, Ohio, the ninth of fifteen children. She devotes her full attention to her career in the fine arts, and becoming recognized as a painter of the National Parks. She has exhibited her paintings and prints, primarily, throughout the states of Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan. She has exhibited at the Ohio Watercolor Society numerous times and has been an exhibitor in their prestigious Ohio Watercolor Traveling Exhibit . She has been a participant and has won numerous awards at the Toledo Federation of Art Societies Annual Exhibit held at the Toledo Museum of Art.
In 1997 she was awarded an Artist-in-Residency at Isle Royale National Park. As a guest of the park service she spent 16 days in isolated wilderness pursuing her art. In 2002 she was awarded another Artist-in-Residency at Voyageurs National Park. Again for two weeks she worked in the wilderness. She spent a week in 2004, painting, at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Every October, she travels to Yellowstone National Park to experience the majesty of the park.
Her most recent trip to Isle Royale National Park was in the summer of 2010.
Her paintings are realistic in style. She uses transparent watercoloror or oil emulsion to create her images. Due to time constrictions, she works from photographs she takes while pursuing her subject matter.
She tries, through her paintings, to share her view of the unspoiled expanse of land that words cannot describe. Being alone out in the vast expanse of our National Parks humbles her and creates an inner peace. Her paintings are very personal. She wants only to express her impression of the wildness and beauty of the land. At times that beauty may be a simple flower.
