Oil and acrylic painting artist who currently resides in Sou
Samantha is a part time up and coming visual artist specializing in oil and acrylic portrait paintings. She is originally from the south side of Chicago and currently resides in southwest Florida. Currently balancing a full time job in the health care field, she still manages to work on commissions and original artwork in her spare time. Both self taught and school taught, Samantha grew up watching her brother and older sister sketch on a daily basis in their sketchbooks when she learned that she too had the “artistic gene.” Samantha's love for art began to grow and flourish during her high school years where she was often recognized for her abilities to draw and paint.
The idea of actually becoming a visual artist didn’t become reality until her senior year where she decided to take art seriously and pursue painting as her college major. Samantha uses art as a way to express herself and she is constantly being inspired by her surrounding. Samantha’s painting style teeters between pop art and realism. However, she is also experimenting with the idea of doing abstract and landscapes in the near future. Her goal is to eventually own an art gallery where she can showcase her work to the world.
