Mates of the Art

Jacqueline Schmidt assembles couples from land, sea, and sky in her print that proves that true love can be found anywhere, anytime, but only between a few very special species. We know wolves run in packs, but in fact, these paired-up pooches prove that the phrase "lone wolf" is a total misnomer. Angelfish respect the sanctity of their one-and-only relationship, Gibbon monkeys stay together for the swing of it, and hawks, swans, cranes, and pigeons are all proven lovebirds. Even termites show that the couple that shares an appetite for good things in life is destined for a fruitful relationship. This unconventional take on amore makes for an ideal gift for the nature lover or an affianced, newlywed, or just wildly romantic couple. Made in Michigan out of 100% recycled newsprint paper.

Jacqueline Schmidt

Artist and designer Jacqueline Schmidt seamlessly blends the urban and natural worlds in all she creates. This ability was first shaped by childhood migrations between New York City, where she was born and raised, and her Catskills summer home.

Later in life, after receiving a B.A. in visual arts and modern dance and an M.A. in Creative Arts Therapy, Jacqueline felt inspired to share her unique artistic sense with wider audiences. This took form in 2008, when she founded Screech Owl Design, a stationery and lifestyle product company. Her work with Screech Owl and as former Creative Director of Moomah as well as with independent clients has made Jacqueline a recognized expert in multiple types of design such as textiles, interiors, web, graphic, toys and many others.

In addition to her commercial design work, Jacqueline's paintings and illustrations have been featured in galleries throughout the US. When not designing, making art or enjoying nature, she spends time at home with her husband, son Finn and cat.

Jacqueline has had full editorial features in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Elle Decoration, ReadyMade Magazine, Coastal Living, D esign Sponge at Home, Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin, Page Six Magazine, Glamour and Casa De Abitare. Her products has also been mentioned in Small Magazine, Design Sponge, O at home, Time out Magazine, New York Magazine, Cookie Magazine, Remodelista, Daily Candy, Vogue, Dwell, Gourmet, Metro Us and More. collection

              This unique piece surpassed my expectations. I hadn't expected the framing to be so nicely done, but both the wood and the glass appear to be of quality material. My first inclination had been to order just the print and have it framed myself, but I'm pleased that I took a chance and ordered it framed. The theme makes it a perfect Valentine gift for my husband and we'll both enjoy it.

                  My wife and I both work in heavy biology dominated fields and after years together, this was a cute way to indirectly say you are my "mate for life!" It looks great in our office between our degrees.
