Christie Scheele was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and now resides in Chichester, New York. After graduating from Alfred University School of Art and Design, with additional training in Madrid and Potosi, Bolivia, Scheele combined free-lance coloring for Marvel Comics with the pursuit of her painting in New York City.
She exhibited her work in New York between 1985 and 1990, when she moved upstate and began painting meditative landscapes of the Catskill Region in oil and pastel while maintaining a freelance relationship with Marvel.
Scheele is now a full time landscape painter with many group and solo exhibitions to her credit. Her paintings are in numerous collections including Bessemer Trust Co, NYC, American Airlines, and Keihin Hotels, Japan.
