About the Artist
"My goal is to capture a fleeting moment and preserve it for all time. It may be the momentary expression of a child or light dancing through trees in a landscape. I love to depict people in ways that tell a story and draw the viewer into the painting to think about your own story. That story often conveys a universal truth that connects us all."
Sparkling light and rich color are characteristic of Valorie Snyder’s "Contemporary Realism" style.
Her paintings combine rich classic traditions with contemporary subjects, resulting in paintings that speak to today’s audience. Her inspiration comes out of her deep Christian faith. It is her desire to bring hope and encouragement to others through her work.
Training - She began her classical training at Atelier Richards in Amarillo, Texas, one of a few studio schools in the U.S. devoted to teaching classical old master techniques. She continued with private classes under Dawn Whitelaw, Joshua Fallik, Deborah Bays, Kristin Olsen, and at the Art Students League of Denver with Kim English, and Ron Hicks.
Shows - Valorie has exhibited her work in numerous galleries and shows nationally and in Colorado, including The Academic Artists Association National Juried Exhibition in Springfield, Massachusetts, Buell Theater and Boettcher Hall in Denver. She has been featured in solo shows at the Town Hall Arts Center in Littleton, Goodson Center in Centennial, Miner's Alley Playhouse in Golden, and the Belmar Museum in Lakewood, Colorado. Her work may be found in private collections throughout the United States.
