Painting, painting and painting. Upon
retiring from corporate life “Mady” plunged into art full
time, taking many workshops at the Scottsdale Artist’s
School and entering juried art shows in Arizona and New
England. Since the pandemic she has turned to bright
splashes of color that bring joy to life. “My studio is my
happy place.” Throughout the last twenty-five years Ms.
Smidt's art has evolved over the full range of styles and
subject matter including a period as a realist (Old Masters
style). Her current body of work is abstract and
"non-representational”, full of energy and emotion.
Her paintings have won awards and have been shown in many
juried shows in Arizona and her native New England.
Art is music for the eyes.
