My name is Adam Schumpert. I was born and raised in upstate South Carolina. I graduated from Winthrop University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree specializing in jewelry and metals. I have worked as Bench Jeweler, designing and repairing fine jewelry as well as designing and manufacturing fantasy style armor and costuming.

I have always loved to draw, but I seriously became interested in the field of illustration in 2008 when a friend suggested I check out Conceptart.org. I was immediately fascinated by the online artists’ community and quickly became infatuated with the weekly competitions on the site. (CHOW… is… Awwwwesssome!)

Since then I have become increasingly aware of the amazing volume of encouragement, inspiration, and camaraderie that is shared by the presence of so many incredible artists online. With the help and encouragement of these communities, my skills and desire to produce art exploded.

I have been working as a Freelance Illustrator since the summer of 2010. My first work was for WildFire LLC.

I am glad you’ve found your way to my website and I hope that you enjoy your stay.

Thanks for looking. :)

Take care,
Adam Schumpert
