K.C. Snider began her art career as an honors graduate from the School of Arts in Eugene, Oregon where she
majored in illustration. For 17 years she was an art instructor for both Lane and Linn-Benton Community
Colleges. She served as a fine arts judge at the Deschutes County Fair, shows in Eugene, and also for events on the
Oregon Coast. She has participated in Western Art shows around the Western United States
and Hawaii, winning many first place awards.
One of her original fine arts pieces
depicting the Redmond Caves and surrounding state park area, and is now displayed at Redmond City Hall.
For 15 years she was a full-time, independent illustrator of children’s books for Guardian Angel
Publishing, St. Louis, Missouri, winning several awards for her illustrations. In 2021 she created the
book cover with some sketches for Rick Steber’s book, The Last Outlaw. Her most recent
accomplishments are a 30”x 40” canvas of a bison entitled “Monarch” which sold within hours of being
on the market, and ”The Majestics,” a 24" x 48" canvas that also sold quickly. These are the first two pieces in a
series of Western paintings portraying America bison in which she is currently working on.
Now living in Redmond, Oregon, she works full time on fine arts.
As a “retired” artist, she gets inspiration from the history and lifestyle of the surrounding
area of the Central Oregon High Desert.
