Digital Collage Art

Born at a very young age, collage artist Shari Jenkins Schmit was kidnapped by coyotes and raised on a ranch near the Bear Paw Mountains southeast of Big Sandy, Montana. 


At the age of 50 and still undecided as to what she wanted to be when she grew up, she realized a decision of some sort was necessary:  see what was on TV, have a mid-life crisis, or do something creative.  She chose the latter.

​Combining her collection of antique photos with vintage ephemera, buttons, flowers, leaves, barbed wire, fabric, bullets, maps, door knobs (you name it, she’s scanned it!), Shari began digitally formatting collage art designs.

Shari’s love of cowgirls is a prevalent theme among her cards, as is her appreciation of history.  And her tragic sense of humor.

With no art education or training, however, her journey to create has taken some interesting twists and turns.  But don’t take our word for it.  Check out these designs! 

Shari’s designs can be found on Leanin’ Tree greeting cards, mugs & magnets, as well as car charms, cosmetic bags, desk plaques, key rings, pill boxes, magnets and glass trays by Ganz.
