M. Jan Schroeder

Creative Renewal Arts Fellow - In 1999, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, with generous support from the Lilly Endowment, established the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program. Originally conceived as a renewal opportunity similar to an academic sabbatical, this groundbreaking initiative offers mid-career artists and arts administrators the opportunity to renew and refresh their creativity. In it's 9th round, the fellowship offers 30 artists and arts administrators $10,000 for an 18 month fellowship period.

“I enjoy being able to slow down and focus intently on tiny details, literally holding my breath to place just a fraction of a pen dot-sized highlight in the eye of my subject.” M. Jan Schroeder.

About My Work:

Schroeder paints miniatures, mostly of wildlife including birds, wolves and more. She also works in still life and landscapes and is even experimenting now with portraiture. Her miniatures have a history that dates back to the 16th century. Small enough to carry with you, royalty often used them as a means of identification and in Victorian times as a way of carrying pictures of loved ones.
