Koo Schadler

Koo Schadler

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. 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.

In 1993 Koo returned to New England. She settled in a small town in southern Vermont and established a studio where she now pursues, full time, the study and creation of egg tempera paintings. Her inspiration derives from the natural world, and the works of the Old Masters - particularly the diptychs and triptychs of the Northern and Italian Renaissance.

Koo is a board member of The Society of Tempera Painters. She writes and lectures on egg tempera painting, teaches tempera and gesso making workshops around the country, and is the author of the book "Egg Tempera Painting - A Comprehensive Guide". Her paintings are in more than 250 private, corporate, and museum collections nationwide.
