A jurist observed that he had never seen work quite like Snouffer’s botanical prints, remarking that she had developed unique printmaking techniques unlike any he had seen in his 35+ year career. Her work is recognized with merited honors and was awarded with commissions for the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota, Ramsey County Library, and others. Snouffer was part of a two-year mentor program and was awarded a 2019 residency with the Science Museum of Minnesota.
Snouffer has a decade of art exhibit installation experience in almost a dozen Minnesota galleries. She has held essential administration and program planning roles in Metro arts organizations. In addition, she served on several Arts Commission grant jury panels.
