Some people are born artists. It is in the way they see the world, react to it and reinvent it.
Snead is an artist in all that she does. Born and raised in Jacksonville, Fl., Snead left the south and moved west in the late 1990's. It was no accident she landed in the Moab area because she felt artistically rooted there. Drawing off local landscapes only enhanced the existing surrealistic qualities of her art. From the red rock spires and hoodoos, to the vast desert basins, a certain kinetic relationship fused with her placement of figures and shadows.
Rich in psychological content, many of her oil paintings are narratives of personal stories or dreams. Her figures are often postured in dance language based on her background in contemporary dance. Other works are simply landscapes that Snead enjoys. She is proficient in oils, pastels, and pencil drawing. Sandi is a graduate of the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale and was an illustrator for many years.
