Schwarzenberger grew up in a household where her mother and grandmother sewed, so she began playing with fabric from an early age. After a career in education, she was able to follow her dream of creating art full-time.
When Schwarzenberger isn’t sewing, she is dyeing vintage lace and linens, creating her own fabric, or working in mixed media.
Several years’ of the pieces in this show reflect the ocean. Its effect on all the senses instills calm and exhilaration simultaneously.
More recently, Schwarzenberger has been exploring spirals as part of a continuing exploration of creating texture with fabric and color. Her work has been juried into national shows, and her wearable art jackets have won national awards and toured the U.S.
