Carol Snow is a certified tribal artisan of the Seneca Nation of Indians.  She has over 100 paintings and drawings published in books, magazines and calendars and has won awards at American Indian art shows throughout the Rocky Mountains. One of her favorite shows is the world renowned Santa Fe Indian Market held in August every year.  She also participates in many other juried shows.

Her current techniques include hand embossed metals (especially copper), assemblages, and mixed media paintings using various combinations of oil and gouache paint, pigment inks, acrylics, alcohol-based inks, assorted fibers, fabrics and other textural elements on canvas and tea or coffee dyed printmaking paper.  She most often works with Animal and American Indian motifs, using realistic and contemporary-primitive styles.  She is also a published writer.

Snow provides materials and direction for visitors who want to make their own metal bookmark.  This has been a very popular activity during her past weekends at Agate Fossil Beds.

When asked why she works in so many different media, her answer is that she has an insatiable curiosity when it comes to the creative process and believes that all possibilities are available for exploration.  She works with the media that a particular image requires and especially enjoys combining various materials together.  Her primary intent is to honor the spirits of the animals that she portrays in her art.
