She has maintained her interest in art through many years in the numerous places where she has lived and worked as an administrative assistant in diverse industries, e.g. Sydney (Australia), San Francisco (California), Calgary (Alberta), and since the mid 80's in Waterloo (Ontario, Canada). Her avocation in watercolours has helped her develop her talents in other artistic areas, such as calligraphy, rubber stamp art, and web page design.
She loves to devote her weekends to painting aquarelles of themes derived from the diverse places she has lived. Mitzi Schnabel accepts commissioned work, be it large or small, in both acrylic and watercolour painting, in calligraphy, and in web site design.
