About the artist: Handpainted, assembled and photographed by Courtney Snyder.
Most of these paints are from a renovation project my husband and I did nine years ago. We bought a dark and dusty condo in a Butcher town mansion (circa 1855) and sold a house we were happy in. We were hoping to make the best of a difficult situation. We also hoped to have a baby, though were not bold enough to plan on this. On the day we sold our four bedroom home for a one bedroom condo, we happily learned I was pregnant. With these paints and a 9 foot ladder we transformed the condo and I suppose our lives. When we left E. Washington St., I had closed my psychiatric practice, was an at home mom wondering what could be done with left over paint, my husband had begun a new career and our daughter was getting ready to walk. In these colors and shapes, I see the nest we created.. I see the unexpected turns our lives took that have brought us to where we are now."
