Biography

Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, Schuster attended Boston University as an undergraduate where her father taught Social Science and Philosophy. There she received a classical training in drawing and painting from the figure as well as a rigorous technical instruction in anatomy and traditional painting techniques. She characterizes her education as unusually conservative for the 1970's. At that time the orientation of most art programs was one of rebellion against the history of art. Schuster began teaching at Oberlin College in 1988.
