A little about Staci

Hi everyone!

I'M Staci Swider. 

My sole purpose painting is to elicit a smile from my viewer and to share an unspoken moment with them. Painting affords me an opportunity to connect with people without words.

I began my art career as a textile designer in the home furnishings industry and today my work "reinterprets the patterns and textures found in function-driven objects such as quilts and baskets as dreamscape imagery that straddles the line between figurative and abstract."  My work is exhibited at many galleries across the Southeast. 

I am a Certified GOLDEN Artist Educator and in addition to yearly artist residencies abroad I enjoy taking groups of artists to Europe to paint. My book, Acrylic Expressions, and 4 instructional painting videos published by Random House are available at major retailers and online at Amazon

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


Flowers from the garden, quirky pottery, my dogs and just about any farm animal; these images get inside my mind's eye, swirl around among ethnic textile patterns, and come out the end of my fingertips as some new imagined reality.


I paint in layers, always starting with a random cacophony of colors. After that it's a dance between drawing shapes, collaging hand painted papers and even older paintings, then more paint. Back and forth until it feels right. Some paintings have as many as 4 and 5 layers of collage added and taken away. 

career highlights

My career has seen many iterations over the years. I've been a textile designer, an art teacher in public school, a mom, and even a tour guide. At the end of the day it's always painting and creating something from nothing that calls me back.
