About the Artist

John Paul Snead is a Washington, D.C., based artist and Digital Marketing Strategist whose primary tools include micron pens and palette knives.

He is a Co-Founder of Lola & Pear Publishing, a small publishing company based on Capitol Hill that focuses on children's books, particularly those that tell stories of rescue dogs. John Paul has illustrated all three of Lola & Pear's books: The adventures of Duke, The Therapy Dog, Mommy Didn't Say That, & Rosie to the Rescue.

John Paul's favorite collection, "The 175ers," is a series of pen and watercolor pieces on 6"x9" paper that was exhibited at Theater Tuscaloosa in Alabama during the run of a production of Cabaret. The collection, using rough pen figures and pink watercolor, depicts the persecution of homosexuals by the Third Reich in Nazi Germany.

He lives in Mount Vernon Square with his partner and usually asleep tabby cat.
