During a highly successful 40-year advertising career in one of the top

ten advertising agencies in the country (located in Chicago) and

then as CEO/Chief Creative Officer of the Schutte Group, Alden earned

over 100 National Awards for creative/marketing excellence.

His innate sense of spatial design, color and creative imaging led him to

develop numerous award-winning brand and product campaigns for

nationally recognized companies.

Today that same skill is seen in Alden’s abstract interpretative paintings.

It’s art that gives the viewer a feeling for the subject via the use of textures,

flowing acrylic colors and dynamic design.

Since 2010, after selling his Advertising Agency, Alden has been focused

on his art career and the marketing of his abstract paintings.

Alden’s art interpretations are inspired from life experiences, travel,

patterns in nature and thoughts and feelings.

Schutte who lives in Southwest Florida and has a summer home in

Buffalo, NY. is fascinated by the interplay of color, shapes and various

forms found in everyday life. Alden works in acrylics and his paintings

reflect the spontaneous nature and movement of the paint as brush

and pallet knife meet the canvas. It’s Alden’s intention that a person’s

own imagination will come alive, and the observer will have a different

experience every time they view one of his abstract paintings.
