Samantha brings excitement of discovery to her work. Her fresh approach becomes almost spontaneous with an innocent freedom of color. She creates representational acrylic paintings of wildlife with an energy that rings of positivity. The viewer is picked up and carried by her energy and freshness in her work. We almost feel as if life urges us to get up and dance with joy. Get carried away in the moment!Ernest Beutel -
Art is a balancing act that compels me to create mixed-media paintings. They are abstract, yet representational. They have a somewhat urban flair, with a country influence. The lines float like gossamer strings yet jam down hard like a bass-playing elephant. I use spray paint, acrylic paint, marker and crayons to develop my ongoing journey toward jagged creatures, painted pixels, and whimsical curves. There is no right or wrong in art, just different interpretations. I am thrilled to continue my artistic voyage.
