BIOGRAPHY

EARL SCHOFIELD

Schofield states, "The artist (that’s me) lives in Antrim, NH.  I teach visual art and art history at the Dublin School.  When I have time and they let me, I teach at the Sharon Art Center and have taught at the New Hampshire Institute of Art. I build my own wooden boats, take care of my family and get into trouble when ever possible. I don’t watch t.v.., I do vote, I read, I splash in puddles and am prone to ranting and raving. I love New England and like most of us that do, I spend a lot of time cursing it.  I have three cats that hate each other, a dog and eight chickens and I am pretty okay with a yo-yo. I can sew, run a chain saw, fish, and accessorize a prom dress. I can throw a pot, use Photoshop, grow, cook and can my own tomato sauce and drive a backhoe. I have kind of a thing for airplanes and want to be a pilot some day but am in a twelve step program for addiction to sporty cars, so that might not be a good idea. I am also pretty sure none of this will help make you want to buy my artwork or think I am more important than I really am, but I do have actual credentials which you can read in my resume, which is not supposed to be funny."
