Subsequently, he took a BA (Hons) Degree from the Winchester School of Art/UK in 1998, since which time he has actively engaged his passion for painting.
‘My work emerges from an imagination that draws upon the memories and themes of my youth in America and the many paths I have taken in my life.’ – David Snider
