Aaminah Snowdon was born in 1990 and is a self-taught artist. Her avid interest in art started at the age of 7 when she won a school competition by painting a rather surreal whale blowing out multi-coloured water spouts. In 2012, after earning herself a 1st class honours degree in Ancient History at The University of Birmingham, she decided to pursue a career in art, with a focus on developing her own unique style that would combine her interests: animals, humour, eccentricity, bold colours and energy.
Aaminah Snowdon’s artwork revolves exclusively around wildlife, farm animals and pets. Working on watercolour paper using acrylic paints, Aaminah paints quickly using lively and spontaneous brushstrokes with bold, vibrant colours to impress the quirkiness, movement and character of her subjects into the painting. She completes each painting with its own witty and fun title. Aaminah’s work has been a part of The Gaslamp Gallery’s contemporary art collection for many years.
