"When I paint, it is as a physical and emotional process delivered through reliance on raw intuitive energy. My liquid impressionistic painting style is both deliberate and thoughtless - from my classical preliminary sketches to my thick dripping layers I drift in and out of consciousness creating fluent, textured imperfections. I work on several pieces at once and am constantly transferring the working elements and building upon layers. My hybrid techniques portray my classical influence combined with my love of the use of bold colors and evident brush strokes.
My wanderlust lifestyle and collection of eclectic photographs from my travels are the source of my inspiration. Everything I see, feel and experience contributes to the depth and fervor of my work. Whether the subjects are figurative or landscapes, I seek to create lush and evocative work. " SAM
Sam's college career was spent in various universities, workshops, institutes, studios and bars across the world. Her five years of intellectual exploration has lead her to live and study extensively in: Spain (University of Salamanca 2009- University of Barcelona 2009-10, Metafora International Artists Workshop 2010), Australia (The National Art School of Australia in Sydney 2011-12) and New York City, graduating with a degree in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute (2012-13).
