Kenneth Baker, in the San Francisco Chronicle, says about Snow's work:
"By the way Snow varies color, materials, dimensions and geometry, she gets us to see every element as gendered. The passages that look like circuitry or constructivist abstraction have a masculine echo; those that suggest stitch-craft or horticulture or procreation make us think ‘feminine’, like it or not. Snow raises the important question: Where do these codes exist? Are they in our minds? What cultural force is it that makes them seem to inhere in certain colors and forms?"
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.
Emptiness and silence of course were crucial to John Cage’s music, which has inspired some of the artist's recent work. On this work on paper, Snow sees the white grounds of her work to be this emptying out, pure lightness. She wants her work to touch lightly on this earth, to not be weighed down by its own materiality. As for the colorful shapes, they are manifold in possibility, they may be words, musical notes, architectural form, everything, or even nothing..
