Schmidt has exhibited her paintings, scuptures and photographs
in New York, Arizona, New Mexico, and Germany. She has also collaborated
on site-specific public works with architects, and her design was
chosen as a finalist in the New England Holocaust Memorial Competition
in Boston, Massachusetts.
Her photographs are tableaux that she paints and contructs using a
variety of natural and found objects. She refers to them as “narrative
fictional photographs,” that she uses to explore memory,
myth, and her relationship to the natural world.
