Tennessee native Dorothy Snowden discovered the beauty of the West while breaking horses and working on a cattle operation near the base of Wolf Creek Pass, Colorado. On a vacation to South Dakota, she learned of Black Hills State University, where she eventually graduated with a degree in Art and Photography. Her original oils and pastels depict horses and rural landscapes. These colorful images have appeared in publications, collections and commercial applications. When she is not in the studio, Dorothy works with”off-the-track” Thoroughbred horses, rehabilitating them for pleasure riding disciplines.
