with host artist Miriam Schulman
Today, I’ve invited artist Jan Schmuckal whom I’ve known a long time but whose success never fails to amaze me. She runs her own art gallery but you’ll never see her art there since all her pieces sell within hours of being posted online on Facebook. This artist doesn’t use Instagram, Pinterest, or write blogs and you may get an email from her once a year. She has built a raving collector base who hungrily await her next offering.
But before we get there, I wanted to ask you a question. Are you subscribed to my podcast? If you’re not, I want to encourage you to do that today. I don’t want you to miss an episode.

A native of St. Charles, Illinois, Jan Schmuckal was the kind of kid always in the middle of some sort of art project, thanks to her very indulgent parents! She graduated from the University of Illinois in 1986 with a degree in Industrial Design, and spent the following years as a designer in the Point-of-Purchase industry. After many years as a designer, she had an overwhelming desire to start painting again, which she had not done since high school. She started out in a little makeshift studio in the corner of her apartment bedroom. At that time, Jan made a conscious decision to go in an impressionistic direction as an artist rather than as a realist because it provided a break from the realistic renderings that she did every day as a designer. To further hone her technique she pursued an ad-hoc education, taking workshops and classes from both nationally accredited and local artists. She entered regional shows, then national shows, placed her work in galleries, gave painting workshops, (quit her design job!) opened 3 successive art studios, taught art classes… and in 2005, Jan opened an art gallery in a 112-year-old house in Geneva, Illinois.

“I can’t thank you and Tyler enough for this podcast. I am an artist who recognizes that getting on Instagram is way overdue but intimidation and fear of the unknown has prevented me from pulling the trigger. This podcast will be my saving grace and encouragement to make it happen!”
