Jan Snyder

Growing up in Ohio, Jan Snyder always knew she would be an artist.  Influenced by her high school art teacher who stressed realism, and educated at Herron School of Art and the Indianapolis Art Center in Indianapolis, IN, Jan strives to create paintings that evoke an emotional response in the viewer.  Whether the subject matter is an animal (horses being her specialty) or a scene from her many travels, she hopes to invite the viewer into her world: a world of beauty and serenity.

As co-founder and current president of the Equine Art Guild, Jan devotes much of her time to raising awareness of equine art and promoting the careers of equine artists.  Her love of the horse has lead to relationships with equine charities and foundations and she is a frequent guest artist at Hickory Hall Polo Club matches.

As a studio artist for Nickel Plate Arts, Atlanta, Jan will be offering monthly classes in acrylic painting and mandala designing.  She can also be found face painting at festivals and special events.
