As a multidisciplinary artist, Snow uses different mediums and supports. Each work results from preliminary studies drawn with pen or pencil and which sometimes can amount to 20 sketches.
Snow sees her work as a constant play between order and chaos, logic and emotion. She combines playful shapes with bright colour, organic gestural lines, geometric and linear forms.
Aesthetically, she wants the painting to look as if it “just happened” and paints in such a way that the brushstrokes disappear and the layers become imperceptible. She has a strong inclination to create something which looks instinctive and effortless.
Rhythm is an important component of Snow's work, both musical and architectural rhythm. She has thought of the negative space between the shapes as a musical interval.
John Cage’s book Notations, a compilation of experimental graphic scores, written to bring out unpredictable possibilities during the performance, has been a touchstone for her in thinking about rhythm, and how the intervals between the beats look visually in the score.
