Petra Schott

Petra Schott is a German abstract painter based in Frankfurt. Her work reflects her everyday life as a woman, her longings, and memories, exploring fundamental questions of life.

After completing her second law exam, Schott pursued a Fine Arts Degree at the Art Academy in Kassel, Germany. Balancing her roles as a lawyer and judge, she cultivated her painting career. Since leaving the legal profession in 2014, Schott's art has garnered attention from national and international galleries, critics, and collectors.

Her emotionally resonant art invites viewers into a space of imagination and introspection. Schott's paintings blend lyrical abstraction with figurative elements, exploring nostalgia, human relationships, and nature's intangible aspects. Her work delves into emotions and the human psyche, highlighting fragility, sensitivity, and spirituality.

Art curator Nell Cardozo notes, "There is a generous intimacy in Schott’s use of color that coaxes out a subtle interplay between comfort and longing. Looking into them is like looking into a dream that belongs to some common consciousness.“


 Schott regularly exhibits in the UK, US, France, Belgium, and Germany, with her art featured in many private collections. She won the Jackson’s Painting Prize for non-representational art in 2023. Her work has been published in Create Magazine and Art Seen, and she is represented by several galleries, including Tappan Collective in Los Angeles, Globe Fine Art Gallery in Santa Fe, Mirena Art Gallery in Saint Paul de Vence, Hancock Gallery in Newcastle, Drift Art Gallery in Nantwich, and BelArt Gallery in Brussels. Schott also teaches an annual workshop at Kunstakademie Eigenart in Bad Heilbrunn, Germany.
