K.C. Snider, an honors graduate from The Eugene School for Art, is a prominent Oregon artist. Her love of the western life and of wildlife has been developed since her youth, with her natural talent for drawing and color exhibited since she was ten years old. She has shared her talents as an Art Instructor at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon.

K.C.’s paintings incorporate horses of all breeds, majestic wolves and buffalo herds, as well as eagles and other native birds of prey, in their rustic natural habitats. The western terrain in her art is not only very detailed, but it also transcends time. Now a resident of Redmond, Oregon, K.C. is inspired by the natural beauty of the high desert of Central Oregon.

K.C.’s artwork has won many awards during her long career. Her rainbow collection of prize ribbons from all over the Northwest is as colorful as her work. Recently, K.C. has won plaques from the 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 Western Art Roundup at Winnemucca, Nevada. She has won prizes in several categories, as well as the prestigious Snaffle Bit Award for her authentic Western Art, the Pioneer Award for the depiction of life on the High Desert, and the Indian Heritage Award for her piece titled, “Hope of the White Buffalo.”

In 2006, K.C. illustrated two children’s’ books, The Christmas Angel, with author Mary Jean Kelso and The Magic Violin, with Mayra Calvani. Both books were published by Guardian Angel Publishing and are also available as e-Books. The Christmas Angel has been an instant success with children, teachers and grandmothers alike. It tells the tale of a young girl who travels with her family to Oregon in the 1830’s on the Oregon Trail and protects a very precious possession, the family’s Christmas tree topper, a porcelain angel. She has now finished illustrations for Andy And The Albino Horse, the first book in a series about an albino horse named “Spirit” and the special children who get to know her. The Andy and Spirit books have a number of sequels already in print. And the sequel to The Christmas Angel titled One Family's Christmas is now available along with K.C.’s first collaboration with author Marilee Crow called Does Heaven Get Mail?

K.C. has been married for 49 years to Fred who is retired from Weyerhauser and is K.C.’s biggest supporter. He does all her framing and some very vital computer work so that K.C. can stay in the studio. They live with their dachshund mix, Jack, in Redmond, Oregon. K.C. and Fred have two children and two grandchildren.
