For the last five years she has lived in East Texas where she has estab­lished her­self as an artist.

Sam’s led a very suc­cess­ful career as an award win­ning graph­ic design­er, hav­ing worked for adver­tis­ing agen­cies, mag­a­zines and her own design busi­ness. Her pri­ma­ry goal she says as an artist is to relate, through the mood and col­or of a paint­ing, a sense of awe and escape to the view­er. A paint­ing can change not only the ener­gy of an envi­ron­ment, it can also change the view­er. Art can be more than col­or on can­vas; it can be a tran­quil beau­ty that brings peace to our lives. Pro­fi­cient in illus­tra­tion, recent­ly Sam’s has turned her tal­ents to the art of pas­tel paint­ing. In 2017, Sam’s was rec­og­nized in the Col­ored Pen­cil Mag­a­zine as a fea­tured artist. Her work has been pub­lished in “Col­or” mag­a­zine “Col­or Pen­cil Hid­den Trea­sures Vol. 4”, and is rep­re­sent­ed in pri­vate col­lec­tions across the Unit­ed States.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=“CV” tab_id=“1556904212591–5cf4ad24-124fcfc7-1e2fbf04-4ffa89a3-5384fcc3-f8bc”][vc_column_text]Group Shows:
