Although formally trained as an engineer, (Georgia Tech 1959 & 1960) Schwartz has been a practicing artist his entire life and art has been his principal source of income since 1980. He and his wife Marsha moved to their secluded hilltop farm in 1978 where they reared their four sons, built a large fuel fired kiln and grew much of their food. (trout, apples, berries, vegetables, beef and maple syrup.) For relaxation, Schwartz plays with his grandchildren, toots his tuba and writes political satire for several area newspapers. His art is exhibited in public, private and corporate collections on four continents.
