About the Artist
In 2002 after ending a 21year career as lead designer for the San Francisco Bay
Area sticker company, Mrs. Grossmanâ€™s Paper Company, Susanna Snodgrass
uncovered a new voice as a painter. Predominantly self-taught, with no formal training as a
designer or as a painter, her work, acrylic paint on paper and her recent work
on Tyvek, is a result of an intuitive way of painting that at times is also a
artist finds from her home on the Humboldt North Coast of California, an
endless transmission of natural beauty, quietude, and teachings that shapes and
sustains her work.
work is a practice that leads into the inner experience. It is a movement searching
out balance and stillness, a harmony of co existing energies.
I bring to this practice a curiosity about the existence of the Natural world and a deepening self inquiry; a life experience.
I am influenced by the colors and light of the living environment, by the
simplicity and directness of Asian brush painting, and by imagery of poetry.
