Lynda Hoffman Snodgrass exhibits her work at Creekside June and July
artwork is a culmination and a sharing of my life experiences, dreams, inner visions, of all I that
am. A third generation Artist I was encouraged to explore and express my creativity at an
early age. Predominately, I am a watercolorist; a colorist with a strong emphasis on design.
The most important part of a painting for me is the message or experience that I want to
share with the viewer. How I handle this dictates the style and medium that I use. If I can do
this with watercolor I will, but I won’t limit myself to just that medium.
Born in Wisconsin, I moved to Oregon in 1964, calling the Rogue Valley my home since
1972. In 1973 I began to work with watercolor on paper and decided to make it my primary
medium. It was 1978 when I received a BS in Art from SOSC. A lifetime member and
past President of the Watercolor Society of Oregon, I was honored to receive the WSO
2014 Service Award. I am also a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society,
a lifetime member of the International Society of Experimental Artists and an associate
member of the American and National Watercolor Societies. I have judged Art
Exhibitions, presented lectures, art demonstrations, taught classes and critiqued for art
organizations as well as individuals. My paintings hang in private collections throughout the United States and around the world.
Over the years I have grown and changed with it so have my paintings. Today, I want my
artwork to stir or spark something within the viewer, to allow their imaginations to play.

we maintain our studios surrounded by the trees and wildlife of the Siskiyou mountains.
