Homeschooled Artist’s John Paul II Painting Tours Parishes

March 19, 2006 @ 7:14 am | Filed under:


Julie Snyder, a homeschool graduate, was 21 years old when she painted this beautiful portrait of Pope John Paul II last year. Last week, the painting accompanied a Monstrance that had been blessed by the Pope on an “Adoration for Vocations” pilgrimage to parishes, schools, and religious communities in the Boston area. Julie, who is now an art student at a Massachusetts college, completed the portrait last April, shortly after the Pope’s death.

Talent runs in Julie’s family: she is the sister of Emily Snyder, author of Niamh and the Hermit and Charming the Moon.
