Geoffrey Schenkel

Geoffrey Schenkel was born November 14th, 1971 in Marietta, Ohio to Susan Hall Schenkel and Gilbert (Bud) Delton Schenkel Jr.

Schenkel attended K through 2nd grades across the street from his boyhood home at Fairview Heights Elementary School, 3rd through 6th were spent at Harmar Elementary, 7th and 8th at Marietta Jr. High. He then graduated from Marietta Senior High School in 1990.

Schenkel graduated with honors in 1994 earning a fine arts degree from Marietta College and a supplemental certificate in Leadership Studies from the Bernard P. McDonough Center for Leadership and Business.

A life changing apprenticeship with Precita Eyes Community Muralist, Susan Cervantes, lead him to the means by which he has been able to successfully intertwine his passion for creation and his deep love for sharing the creative process with individuals who may not be inclined to visit a gallery or an art museum, but who are, nonetheless, curious about art and/or creative efforts. This requires a unique sensitivity and flexibility, in which Schenkel takes great pride.
