Stephen Snider - Premium Artist
Stephen Snider is internationally known for his historical illustrations, aviation art, drawing and painting classes and children's book illustrations. Stephen uses woodcut, watercolor, acrylics and oil paints to create his art and is recognized for his attention to detail and accuracy in each historically researched piece.
Stephen Snider has been a freelance illustrator since the early eighties after graduating from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto. He's worked for advertising agencies, book and magazine publishers, design firms and corporate clients all over North America. He's even covered peace time operations in Canada and Europe for the Canadian Armed Forces.
Stephen is still busy illustrating for his clients but in the past few years he's branched out more into the fine arts world. He enjoys landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, portraits (animal or human) and just about anything else that catches his eye. He can be found in downtown Toronto or in resort towns like Whistler sketching the buildings and people. He then goes back to his country studio in Northumberland county and works up the sketches into larger paintings for commissions and future clients. When he's not busy illustrating for a publisher or painting a large cityscape or doing a watercolour of some grand old Muskoka cottage, he's teaching two classes a week in drawing and painting to adults.
