I found a book about her paintings in Washington D.C, when I was living there 2005 and visiting different art shows. I fell in love in her art in the spot and every time I look her work I get so inspired! So here comes little bit information about her and my favorite art work of hers.

Joan Snyder (born April 16, 1940) is an American painter from New York. She is a MacArthur Fellow and a Guggenheim Fellow. Her paintings have been exhibited at several museums, including the de Saisset Museum and the Jewish Museum.

Joan Snyder's "stroke paintings" from the late 1960s and early 1970s were "abstract compositions, many of them quite large, that are loosely based on a grid format and that together constitute a dissection of the language of painting."

Her paintings have been described as "abstract", "intuitive and spontaneous", and "pointedly political". She also paints with a colorful style, using floral effects which are branded with paint sprinkled with a range of materials, such as jewel-like metal objects.
