Liz Schachterle

What I do.  I'm a visual artist, performer, puppeteer, paper cut artist, director, animator, illustrator, baker, sewer, sculptor, teacher, sign painter and project manager.  I am a multidisciplinary artist that seeks to combine the arts as often as possible.

I've built and performed just about every type of puppet.  I like to create puppet shows that are both traditional in the form and untraditional.  I describe my work as poetic, child-like, live animation that is both sweet and dark.

Although puppetry is a large focus of my artistic background it is not the only work that I create.

I am inspired by great projects, collaborators and travel.  I'm very flexible in where I live and work.  Although my studio is in Minneapolis I am able to collaborate and travel anywhere that's needed or desired.
