About the Artist

Barry L. Snyder

    It is truly difficult for me to say that I am inspired by any “one” artist.  Every time I think that I have it pegged…I see something new or meet someone who inspires me even more.  I love to mentor aspiring artists and I enjoy sharing all aspects of art, art history and art business.  Whenever I meet an artist or view someone elses work, I usually walk away with some new insight.  I truly gain inspiration from nearly everyone.

     No hocus pocus here...No lofty academic philosophy...I am, simply, an avid traveler and I paint that which provokes my inner spirit at the moment.  Mostly, I paint the people that I meet along the way.  I love meeting people, sharing their culture and exchanging ideas and that exchange is what I find most important. 

     For the most part I like to paint with watercolors, however, I have been known to switch mediums as the subject dictates.  I only create original work and presently I do not mass produce my work.  I only use quality archival materials that are known to last.  This is the only way I can truly feel confident that I have sold a worthy investment to you, my patrons and my friends.
