Welcome to my Blog.
I have had a love affair with animals since a small child, walking my neighbor’s dogs and walking to the Sunset stables as horses have always been close to my heart. To capture my subjects’ facial expressions and reach into those eyes, the soul of all my subjects is what I strive to capture. I recently started drawing human portraits and adding humans to animal portraits, you have got to keep fresh ideas flowing. My favorite medium is Graphite Pencil, Charcoal and Watercolor.
“CAPTURING THE WONDER OF WILDLIFE
AND PETS!” Joette Snyder
Passionate wildlife artist and dedicated to preserve the beauty of our wild animals. Watercolor is fairly new and exciting for me, as pencil and charcoal is a relaxing medium for me. To capture the facial expression of a clients pet or wildlife is the ultimate goal. I hope to capture the beauty of all living things. I am just happy to be back in Los Angeles after nine years in Oregon running a Cafe Coffee House. But the wildlife was incredible to draw upon.
