Julie Saecker Schneider Julie Saecker Schneider is a painter/drawer and an emeritus faculty member of the University of Pennsylvania. Professor Schneider received her B.S. and M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in the United States. She currently lives and works in Austin TX.

Concerned with re-contextualizing myths, the physical description of memory, and contemporary politics, Schneider works primarily in graphite creating large tightly crafted drawings of figures and dead roses, her metaphor for memory. The stories draw from many cultures but are primarily Middle Eastern and European in origin. Paralleling these works and generated concurrently are installations of porcelain roses and the narrative vessels.
