Schwarzrock and her partner Matthew Curtis share a studio in Queanbeyan, NSW where they run a glass furnace in which they often tint the molten glass to create varied colours and hues.
Schwarzrock studied in the glass studio at Sydney College of the Arts in the 1990s and was fortunate to have artists/teachers such as Elizabeth Kelly, Matthew Curtis, Ben Edols and Kathy Elliott. Perhaps most formative during Schwarzrock's studies was an opportunity to travel to North America to work with and assist both Laura Donefer and Stephen Powell in their varied studio glass practices.
Schwarzrock claims that she is fortunate to have a wonderful partner and a rambling studio in which to experiment and work.
