Aaron Schmitz is a visual artist based in Minnesota. He uses photography as a medium to inspire others to participate in an experience, to have viewers look at things from a new perspective, and to tell an on going story of his own personal journey. He uses painting as a medium to create pleasing images that serve as a visual vacation from the technologically driven life that has become so common in the 21st century. His goal as an artist is to continue to grow and create in each of these mediums to attempt to balance the over stimulation with simple enjoyment. As they say, sometimes less is more.
