Pat Snyder

Artist Statement

I think of my art as a quilt.  I layer color, marks, shapes, and sometimes scraps of photographs, paper, and found objects onto the canvas and then look for common threads that practically weave themselves into patterns. Ultimately, it is the kaliedoscopes of lush colors that reveal which of the infinite possibilities of patterns to pursue.
