susan snyder

Susan Snyder is watercolorist, naturalist, and writer who creates field journal-style artwork as a way to study nature and its relationships.  Her mission is to help herself and other people find connections to nature to rejuvenate and inspire. Susan wants us all to understand how we fit into nature’s web so that we can create balanced, sustainable and rewarding lives and communities.

She spends as much time outdoors creating illustrated nature journals as she can, and also paints in the studio. Through classes, Susan encourages others to join her in the journaling experience.  She paints and teaches art through the lens of ecology and environmental education because nature allows people to explore how to think, rather than telling them what to think. Nature encompasses all subjects, investigating math, science, literacy, the arts, social studies, history, philosophy, and religion. Nature study can include components of all of these subjects at once, creating a truly cross-curriculum experience.

Susan is a former naturalist at Ogden Nature Center, a member of the Ogden Palette Club, Utah Watercolor Society, and Wasatch Audubon Society. She has shown her work in numerous shows at Eccles Community Art Center, the Ogden Arts Festival, the International Environmental Art Show at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA, and in smaller shops and shows around Northern Utah. She also has an extensive background in journalism and still creates freelance articles about nature and the environment, as well as helping others learn to use writing to supplement their journal illustrations.
