Schwiering was born in Boulder, Colorado and grew up in Laramie, Wyoming where he developed his lifelong love for the western landscape. As a student at the University of Wyoming, he minored in art and studied under Robert Grahame and Raphael Lillywhite. Schwiering then went to New York City to paint full time and studied at the Art Students League with Charles S. Chapman whom he greatly admired. After serving in World War II he settled in Jackson Hole,Wyoming with his wife, Mary Ethel where he established a studio in Grand Teton National Park, overlooking the Tetons. He painted and sketched outdoors daily, regardless of the weather and became best known for his dramatic scenes of the Tetons and surrounding areas.

Schwiering was represented by leading galleries throughout the United States and was an extremely popular artist, selling over 1,000 paintings. In 1981, he was recognized by the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Museum with a one man exhibition and was noted for his outstanding contributions to Western art. He was also one of six artists chosen by PBS for their Profiles in American Art series (1981).

Conrad Schwiering died January 26, 1986 at the age of 69 in Monterey, California while photographing and sketching on the beach.
