Sarah Regan Snavely is a studio artist and sculptor who works in the extreme southwestern corner of North Dakota with her pack of Greyhound dogs. She is also the director of the Bowman Regional Public Library. Snavely works primarily in clay. She loves its plastic and pliable nature. While the technical nature of engineering this material can be challenging, the imperfect, hand built qualities continue to interest and inspire Snavely.
Born and raised in Bowman, North Dakota, Snavely moved to Minnesota in 1993 to attend Minnesota State University - Moorhead. After a brief time at Oxford University in England, she returned to MSUM where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts (emphasis in Printmaking) in 1997.
Snavely’s work is displayed in public and private collections in seventeen countries as well as all fifty United States.
Volunteer/memberships include: Prairie Rose Art Association (Bowman), Greyhound Pets of America, Almost Home for Hounds (Nunn, CO), North Dakota State Library, and Pioneer Trails Regional Museum.
