Koo Schadler was born and raised in Litchfield,
Connecticut. She graduated from Tufts University in 1984
with a BA in Art History. After working at the Boston Museum
of Fine Arts, Koo traveled to Europe to explore old museums
and to study art. Eventually she settled in Florence, Italy
where she studied painting at Studio Art Centers International
and with artist Peter Foster. In 1986 she moved to California
where she became involved in a variety of creative endeavors:
a three year apprenticeship with master furniture maker
Norman Petersen, work as art director for a chain of natural
food stores, and painting studies at the College of Marin.
It was under the tutelage of Marin professor Chester Arnold
that Koo was introduced to egg tempera painting, a traditional
medium made from powdered pigments and egg yolk.
Koo combined her painting, craft and commercial art backgrounds
to create a line of mixed media boxes, mirrors and jewelry.
Her work was featured at craft stores throughout California
and the Northeast.
In 1993 Koo returned to New England
and settled in a small town in southern New Hampshire.
For three years she studied classical oil painting with
Numael and Shirley Pulido in Hancock, NH, while pursuing
egg tempera studies on her own. She established a studio
where she now pursues full time the study and creation
of egg tempera paintings and silverpoint drawings. Her
inspiration derives from the natural world, and from the
works of the Old Masters - particularly the diptychs and
triptychs of the Northern and Italian Renaissance. She
is a board member of The Society of Tempera Painters; writes
and lectures on egg tempera painting and Old Master design;
and teaches tempera, gesso, and design workshops around
the country and abroad. Her paintings and drawings are in more than 400 private and corporate collections, and many museums nationwide.
