Snitzer earned his MFA from Pennsylvania State University and his BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art.  He is actively an educator and administrator in art; and a community leader involved in many aspects of the Miami art business world.  Snitzer's work pays homage to materials, both found objects and raw woods.

    Snitzer says:

    My work is the product of “Informed Intuition."Reconfiguring scraps of wood and other materials into wall collages. The decisions made about what to use and how to use it are decisions made by tapping into forty some years of looking. That is simply it!
