About Me

John Schnellmann
Jan. 3, 1946 to Jan. 13, 2023 

I have studied art all my life. Wherever I have lived, I have added to my knowledge of art. Along the way, I completed formal training at: St. Louis Community College; the Torpedo Factory in Arlington, VA; the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.; Fontbonne College in St. Louis, and various workshops.

I am inspired by Monet and Van Gogh and Klimt.  I paint original oils and ceramics and fused glass.  I have so much work, I am looking to sell some. contact me here or on e-mail me if you are interested in buying some of my work.
