Ingrid M. Schmeck (born 1944 in Poznań) is a German graphic artist.

She studied at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel between 1962 and 1967 and between 1971 and 1973 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hamburg. Since 1974, she is working as a freelance artist in Germany, Switzerland and Greece. In her pictures of houses and townscapes she developed a distinctive, multi-perspective way of presentation. Beside urban themes she is dealing with subjects of the European plant world as well as maritime subjects like seascapes and illustrations for the former cruise company Deilmann.[1] One of the main subjects in her work remains the forms of appearance of European Fastnacht and Carnival, particularly traditions in Basel and Lucerne and the Alemannic range.

In numerous different solo exhibitions her work was presented in museums and galleries in Basel, Berlin, Athens, Aix-en-Provence, Coburg, Eckernförde, Genève, Goslar, Lübeck, Lucerne, Munich, Zurich as well as on the islands Sylt and Naxos.[2]
