K.C. Snider started in art when she was very young. She graduated with honors from the School of Arts in Eugene, Oregon, where she majored in Illustration. She was an art instructor for 17 years at both Lane and Linn Benton Community Colleges. Her fine arts career began in Western Fine Art where she has won several prestigious Western Art awards, like the Snaffle Bit, Pioneer, and Indian Heritage awards. Her subject matter is usually themed Western and wildlife.
In 2007, K.C. took the opportunity to illustrate for Guardian Angel Publishing Company, publishers of children's books with a message, or a moral, or additional activities after the story. To date she has illustrated 50-plus children's books including her own fine arts wordless book published by Guardian Angel Publishing, titled SILENCE.She has won national and international literary awards for her children's books illustrations and has created a new "retirement" career for herself.
K.C. uses a variety of illustration styles from the simple comic to the detailed realistic, something not many illustrators can do. She works on illustration board with qouache and uses air brush and pen outline. Many of her original illustrations are hanging in the Children's Museum of Illustrated Books in St. Louis, Missouri.
Her Fine Arts range from paintings to clay figurines and bronze work. She works with a wide variety of art media. Her husband framed many of her paintings with beautiful crafted barn wood frames sometimes embedded with barbed wire, rope, and artifacts. He has since passed away.
