Matthew has been a full time professional artist for over 20 years, with solo gallery exhibitions held once a year.

His bold paintings executed exclusively with a palette knife in impasto acrylic have attracted a wide following amongst art collectors.

His paintings are in many private and prestigious collections including The National Library Of Wales and The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum.

Storm Islay 120x40cm                                       “Being an intuitive artist, I like to leave room for the unpredictable while I am painting, allowing the viscosity of the paint to dictate where the work is heading but at the same time not losing sight of the subject and overall feel….. Using copious amounts of paint to carve form, you could say that I like to make my paintings as robust as the landscape they depict.” MATTHEW SNOWDEN, 2017

“Matthew creates astonishing textural works on canvas of incredible landscape scenes that are both dynamic and powerfully moving. With subjects that are close to his heart, this transient artist roams the west coast of the British Isles capturing the incredible beauty of this country’s wilderness, along its “Outer Edges”  THACKERAY GALLERY LONDON 2018
