Hello! Artist Riki Schumacher

Sometimes there are people who really leave an impression on you for no particular reason at all. The moment you meet Riki, you feel a warmth of sunshine beaming on your face and a spark of inspiration in your head and heart. Artist and Art Retreat in the Desert Instructor, Riki Schumacher, is truly one sweet gal. We love having her teach our students and be a part of the Vivi Magoo Presents Family. Watch Riki's new view to see what she's up to for February 2015!

Take a sprinkling of Kansas, throw in a Toto doggie and Prince Charming, a beautiful cabin in the woods and a beach house. This is Riki's life.  Born in Kansas, she splits her time between two paradises; one in Washington state, and the other in California on the Central Coast. She is happily married to the man of her dreams, and is a dog mom to her Havanese,  Maddie.  After putting in 20 years as a professional advertising executive, she had the opportunity to live her dream, retire and start her own jewelry business.  That was 15 years ago.  She has been published numerous times in Stampington's magazines, and other publications, and has traveled the world to learn new mixed media and jewelry techniques.  Her next stage of exploration has been teaching, which has been incredibly positive. She says, "teaching is the most rewarding experience.  It allows you to share your knowledge with those who want to change their lives in some small way. What a wonderful gift, to help make that happen".  Try to catch up with Riki at one of her workshops somewhere in the U.S.  Share in her enthusiasm, have fun, and learn at the same time...we're not in Kansas anymore Toto!
