Ashley Koebrick Schmidt

I am a fine art oil painter and commissioned artist based in Iowa. My paintings range from portraiture to landscape, in realism and photo-realism styles. My technique employs clean lines and layered texture for intense, vivid color and depth. 

 I started drawing and painting as a young child. Encouraged by my family, I spent much of my free time as a child sketching scenes from around my home. I was primarily self-taught, and my professional training was limited to a few local community college classes. I am currently a part time artist, with hopes of someday making it a full time position. 

I am actively involved in my local art community; I am a member of the Arts Council, and I recently took over as chairperson of the annual art festival  (“Art-a-Fest”) in my hometown of Charles City, Iowa. When I am not painting, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and walking, hiking, or biking outdoors.


I only use professional, archival grade materials for all of my paintings. 

I use smooth, pre-stretched linen canvas, and my preferred brands are currently Masterpiece and Centurion. My favorite paints and mediums are all made by Gamblin. I also use Gamblin varnish (satin or gloss, depending on the painting) for all of my paintings, to protect against cracking and UV damage. I use a variety of paintbrushes, large and (very) small, from many different brands including Benicci and Virtuoso. I use a palette knife sparingly, usually for background design and texture. 

Other supplies that are ALWAYS on my easel include: 

          • Canvas pliers
          • Staple gun
          • Channellock pliers
          • Scissors
          • Paper towels
          • Ruler
          • Palette paper
          • Pencil & eraser
