My name is Rochelle Schultz, and I welcome arts patrons to my website. My hometown is Rapid City, where I graduated from Stevens High School. Then, I moved to the Twin Cities and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Minneapolis College of Art + Design. I also served in the South Dakota and Minnesota National Guard. For my first career, I worked as a graphic designer for an advertising agency, book publishing company and Black Hills area souvenir wholesaler, to name a few. I became an art teacher after completing the teacher certification program at Northern State University. On this website, I have placed a few of my favorite professional projects completed over the years.
