Linda French“Painting is my path to a world where entire stories can be told through a captured moment in time. ” —Julie Snyder

A native of Scotland, artist Julie Snyder studied drawing and painting at the Glasgow School of Art. The setting itself was extraordinary and inspiring. Architect Charles Rennie Macintosh designed the Art School in 1897, combining his unique style of Scottish tradition with Art Nouveau. Julie Snyder was encouraged to pursue her art by an artist-mother and a writer-father.

Julie’s artistic career has spanned both sides of the Atlantic and included several years of residence in Southern Spain. Julie Snyder forged her craft as an illustrator in advertising, publishing and the motion picture industry, including Warner Bros.

She now lives in Southern California, where she paints, holds workshops and teaches painting at the Businessmen’s Art Institute in Montrose. Julie Snyder is a sought-after artist in the Southern California figurative art scene. “I paint the figure, finding my subjects in many walks of life and I bring them into the studio to model. I love to recreate an impressionistic environment on the canvas that tells a story.”

She paints to tell the stories of everyday people in their environment. Painting wet on wet with a balance of loose and tight brush work, she uses color and light to create interest and focus. Her paint quality is expressionistic as she captures the essential mood and gestures of her subjects. Julie Snyder also has a growing number of clients who commission her to paint portraits. Her intimate portraits are more than the traditional “head and shoulders” as she unerringly finds the special quality that makes each individual both unique and multifaceted.

Julie Snyder also finds time to promote the arts: She served for two years as president of the historic Businessmen's Art Institute of Los Angeles.
