I play with acrylic on canvas and paper, fabric and mixed media, all with an abstract perspective. My painting combines patterns, textures, colors and emotion. I channel my inner child, pushing myself to feel that magic, listen to my own voice and trust that I know when it is right. It is a continual growth process as I advance my art techniques and use memories and emotions as inspiration.
Pat Snyder is a Nashville based painter who creates abstract paintings with acrylic, fabric and other mixed media on canvas and paper.
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Snyder began her interest in art when she was young, while playing in fabric stores with her mother. Her mother taught her to mix seemingly disparate textures, colors and patterns to create distinctive works of art in the form of dresses, coats and more.
Design has been a constant thread throughout Snyder’s professional marketing career and has played an important role in honing of her sense of balance, color and texture in her artistic works.
Snyder has studied with various artists including Anton Weiss, Martica Griffin, Krista Harris, Audrey Phillips and Steve Aimone, and continues to do so regularly. Her works reside in private collections alongside artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Louise Nevelson and Frank Stella.
