Dorothy Snyder is 94 years old and lives in Wyoming, MI. This is her fourth year entering Art Prize and she is looking forward to the excitement it brings. For decades she has painted a wide range of subject matter on canvas and found objects including portraits, still life, land, and seascapes. Much of her work originates from her own photography. Dorothy started painting regularly in the 1960s after she completed an oil painting class at the YWCA. In an effort to perfect her skills she took several private lessons from a local painter. During this time she painted the first of many portraits, including past presidents and memorial pieces. A vast collection of her work is displayed in her home that she and her husband built 60 years ago. Dorothy also hosts a weekly painting class for women in her home studio.
